When innocence ruled me and naivety I show
When dreams were impossible, where simplicity’s the life code
All housed in a primitive, rudimentary abode.
I didn’t stretch out my hand to reach for the stars
I didn’t explore the horizon, didn’t travel far lands
I was content as a boy, in one hand were candy bars –
On the other were books, my brain tried to understand
Dreadful as I was, I had to pack my things and leave you
Sure, it wasn’t easy,but opportunities were few.
Armed with hope and aspiration, I traverse my unknown fate
Reminded of your promise, you will to me wait.
Now that I’ve grown, and made a name of my own
After overcoming struggles, every stick and every stone
The cool winds I miss, I pine for the clean shores
Fuzzy traffic I despise, hazy atmosphere bores.
Anticipation sorely dwells as I get near you again
For years I’ve waited, I just want to get off this plane!
My dear hometown, I know, it’s been awhile and I’m sorry
But in your arms, I am again, now I never have to worry.
