lyrics

I don’t think you ever fully leave Lincoln
No this city’s somehow tethered to your sleeve
And no matter what you say about this tired, simple place,
It seems to me you never fully leave,
Yeah you always come back to Nebraska,
Where the cornfields are growing to the sky
And your restless feet may take you many places,
But your dreams all pull you back here in the night
And you’ll try to make your name in many cities
When all you really wants a simple life
And you’ll fall in love with true and wild women
But in the end you’ll take a sweet Midwestern wife
And I am not the sweet Midwestern type
No I am not the sweet Midwestern type

But after driving for miles down I80
I start to feel a little more at peace
Dreaming of tiny houses on the edges of this town
And the train whistle that sings us back to sleep
And I start to think I never really left Lincoln
Even when the road was all that I could see
Cause no matter what I said when I was blowing in the wind
About rambling along and living free
This city left its porch light on for me
