This Town

From the Album Terasa

It’s good to see you back here
My old friend
I hear that life has treated you well
I still remember two boys
Walking home from school
What stories we could tell

We never caught that big fish
They talked about
But we sure did try
They still talk about that time
You farted in class
We laughed until we cried

This town is enough for me
This town is all I’ll ever need
This Town is where I want to be
This Town
This Town
This town

This town wasn’t right for you
We could see in your eyes
The city lights and buildings grand
How strange to see that young boy
Now a powerful man
Holding lives in the palm of your hand

Yes I’m still living here in the same old house
Teaching in that same old school
My kids still look for that big fish but still no luck
Laughing with friends and playing the fool

I wish you all the best, my dear old friend
But your world is not for me
This here is my empire, I know it’s not so big
But what I’ve got is what you see


Working in clubs and bars, you get to strike up a lot of conversations with people from all walks of life. When the first line, “It’s good to see you back here, my old friend,” came to me, it reminded me of a conversation I had with Michael, a man who had sailed single handily around the world. He returned home after a year and went to his local pub. An old friend came over to speak to him, and the conversation went something like this,

“Hello Michael. I haven’t seen you for ages. Where have you been?”

“I’ve been sailing around the world.”

“That’s nice. Did you see the football yesterday?”

Michael was a popular man, and despite being wealthy and adventurous, he was not the type to lord it over others. If anything, he told me he felt a little envious of their contentment.
