Escape, by Erin Reeve
Lonely street, lonely life
Homes for sale, urban blight
Kids all wonder what to do
What can they look forward to?
Get a job, convenience store
Fall for the guy next door
Have a kid, get stuck in this town
Until he’s grown, she’s tied down.
She needs to escape, She needs to run
Flee the wasteland this town’s become
She needs to escape, she needs to go
There’s a future out there, she knows
She needs to escape. She needs to escape.
Computer whiz, data queen
Learns the programs in between
the job, the kid, and more
Searching for that open door.
This could be anywhere USA
We all know there has got to be a better way
Than just drowning in your sorrows everyday.
