I dreamed of getting out, I dreamed of letting go… Song 204

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with my home town. I’ve always felt relieved to move away from it, and nostalgic every time I come back. There’s just something that always draws me there. The beach, the buildings, the streets. I know them well. But it doesn’t know me at all anymore. Familiar faces, some are known to me. Strangers everywhere, some may be friends. Who knows anymore? Do I care? There are still whispers of my youth rattling around in my head. There are still good memories and bad memories and glimpses of what used to be a memory, but now it’s gone. Love-hate-love.

Song 204: “I Dreamed”

I’d like to feel reborn in this city
I wanna feel the rain fall down
I’d like to feel like I belong here
But I think I’ve been gone too long

I dreamed of getting out, I dreamed of letting go
But it always calls me home

I’m always getting lost in my mind
Dreaming of what should have been
The pavement rising up to greet each step
I still don’t know what it all means

I dreamed of growing up, I dreamed of breaking out
But these streets never knew my name

I feel the waves rushing up to meet me
This wind-swept shore shows me who I am

I dreamed of growing up, I dreamed of breaking out
But these streets never knew my name

I dreamed of getting out, I dreamed of letting go
But it always calls me home

It always calls me home
