Miss America [demo]

from Whiskey Tango (single) by Val Bauer



Do you remember those Bellingham summer days
when we'd sip Oly tall-boys in the grass;
And we'd walk down State and Holly Streets
to meet our friends for the party at the High Street house?

Well we've come so far from where we'd begun
I wish I'd walked instead of run
I guess I never realized just how happy I was

I'm back in this life again,
but this down just ain't the same
It's not like the place I'm from
But I didn't love it til I left
I thought I'd leave and not look back,
but I guess there's something I miss
I guess I miss my home

And there were those days at my parents' place
brewing with my dad on the back deck
And I'd drive with my bud to town at night
to see what we could find on the racks at Everyday

But I've lost friends along the way
I've learned from plenty of mistakes
I'm not sure I have a home to go back to anymore
