lyrics

I come from a place
where people know my face

the stars in the sky
keep their selfish space

Now I set my feet
on two hundred year old streets

Trees meet the stars
Leafs offer moonlight seats

but I cant forget
where i come from and who ive met

Dear Texas

The roads here like veins
in the heart of each city

the clouds like the skin
soft, perfect and pretty

I can sit and watch the grass grow old
and watch firelfys light like a flashing bulb

It seems to me like a concert event
Cameras popping to capture the moments

But my l ife has turned
around in the back of an ambulance where I learned

Dear Texas
You know I miss this
To see your purple skies
you opened up my eyes
Dear Texas

I come from a place
where people know my face

the stars in the sky
keep their selfish space

Now I dig my toes
in the land of foreign foes

lie with you and stare
we spy on stars that we know wear

But I stand tall and proud
Pronounced dead, back again without cause cuz I've found

Dear Texas
You know I miss this
To see your purple skies
you opened up my eyes
Dear Texas
