Story

I had a friend who constantly compared New York (unfavorably) to other places he'd lived.  New York was so expensive, it was so hard to make friends, life had been so much easier in the other places.  It was clear he was living in the past, nostalgic for a time and place that was long gone, and I got tired of hearing about it.

Lyrics

Don’t want to hear ‘bout Colorado

About the Rockies & the pines

You liked ‘em better in the rearview

But now they’re all that’s on your mind, so...

 

Get on back to Colorado

Get on back, clean up your mess

Get on back, remake the movie of your life

But they tore the set down when you left.

 

Don’t want to hear ‘bout Austin, Texas

And all the ladies that you knew

‘Cause I can feel them all around us

When I want to be alone with you, so...

 

Get on back to Austin Texas

Get on back, clean up your mess

Get on back, remake the movie of your life

But they tore the set down when you left.

 

Well, I love my New York City, but if you don’t

I truly understand.

I’ll help you load the truck, I’ll even pack your lunch.

Go west young man!

 

Don’t want to hear about that year in LA,

The endless summer turned you brown

You say the winters here are killers

Well babe, that’s why the birds don’t stick around, so...

 

Get on back to California

Get on back, clean up your mess

Get on back, remake the movie of your life

But they tore the set down, they tore the set down when you left.
