“No One Wants To Live Here Now” by Twin Cities


“I can’t wait to get out of Wichita” is a refrain I’ve heard a lot throughout my life. A lot of people I know blame Wichita for their problems. They thought life would finally start going perfectly for them if they could only live in a different place.

“No One Wants To Live Here Now” was a song I wrote in response to this thought. It’s one of the three completed songs (with more to come) slated for the next Twin Cities’ release.

Lyrics:
Everybody’s skippin’ town
heading someplace better
this place has always held them down
so they’re leaving forever
to build a home out on the coast
New York or California
to get away from all they’ve known
this place they’ve grown so bored of

cause everything
is always happening
someplace else

do you really think
packing up your things
will change anything

No one wants to live here now
and who can really blame ’em?
They’ve done nothing with their life somehow
Must be the city that they came from
Its old-fashioned way of doing things
is stopping them from living
the perfect life they always dreamed
they someday would be given

cause everything
is always happening
someplace else
and when they leave
they’ll become so
so interesting

do you really think
packing up your things
will change anything
