somewhere else lyrics – kathleen edwards

i used to look for you out in the daylight
i took highways and sidestreets and back lanes
slept under open skies
life can be cruel
life can be sweet if i want it to be

this town that i once called home
i just can’t hold on to
it’s got bus stops and strip malls and people
i would never even talk to
she said life can be cruel
but life is so sweet ’cause i let it be

everybody out here
they wanna live somewhere else
i wish i could find a place
and stay there by myself
bit by bit i swear i think i’m losing
all this city’s confidence

/ kathleen edwards lyrics
