  1. My Own Place

Lyrics

Goodbye to the wallpaper I’ve stared at,

since I was just a child

This room has been slowly closing in on me,

for quite a while



My sister left home long ago and she

never looked back

It’s high time I made it on my own before

my folks give me some flack



Goodbye to the basement where I wasted all my

time on video games

Will I still have a place to run and hide when I

have my own place



My own place, my own place, my own place, my own place



Goodbye to the pictures staring back when I

pass through the hall

All the haircuts I wish I could forget,

all my fashion pitfalls



All the leftover books I’ve had since high school,

hiding under my bed

A tape collection of music from the eighties,

I can’t throw out yet



Goodbye to the house that I grew up in,

I’m leaving without a trace

Sneaking out the back door one more time,

to find my own place



My own place, my own place, my own place, my own place
