Roses Are Red – Leaving Detroit lyrics

Long since I've been here
Been with the friends I hold so dear
It's just the way it makes me feel
So real
Pull up to see your smiling face
I'd rather be no other place
Another home away from home
We're wide awake at dawn
Time to be moving on
Been dreaming all my life
It's the last night
I'm going home
With the wrecking crew all night
Down Van Dyke to Sterling Heights
Thinking about the times we had
So glad
You've given us more than you will know
Pack up the van it's time to go
Another home away from home
And this is all I'll ever need
And this is all I want
