[Intro]
For all my people worldwide
Just trying to see the world
And how wide it is
You know
[Chorus: Lee Sissing & Tanya Morgan]
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
New York, L.A
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
Atlanta, Houston
[Verse 1]
The rents keep raising up
And you know it’s because of us
They gentrify where we reside so brownstones is now gone
Just condos we can’t afford or dream of calling home
Calling home’s depressing
Full of tales from cats that ain’t learned they lesson
Or you missing all the events, birthdays and graduations
Make you wonder why the f*ck you ever even left ’em
But they just a plane ride away
Or short drive depending where you stay
‘Cuz it’s no place like home love it or leave it alone
You can love it or leave it if it ain’t where you belong
Just pack ya bag and motivate
When the change comes, you gotta meet it halfway
Free spirits not many understand ’em but i do
So I had to write a transplant anthem for you
[Chorus: Lee Sissing & Tanya Morgan]
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
Las Vegas, Chicago
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
Detroit, San Fran
[Verse 2]
God forbid you move for a chick, but God bless it all regardless
‘Cus you need it now more than ever just to make it to the first phase
‘Cus now you all alone in your girlfriends state
And you gotta hang with her friends
And they cool but you wish you had some more friends
And your friends posting Facebook photos of home’s going ons
Still tag you to the flick like “i wish you wasn’t gone”
But you left for greener pastures, and didn’t plan for disasters
Tryna master your own fate keeping you from home
Aain’t nothing wrong with being gone if you think I’m wrong
You can pack you shit and go or
Find a new city and leave em both bruh
Free spirits not many understand em but i do
So i had to write a transplant anthem for you
[Chorus: Lee Sissing & Tanya Morgan]
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
Tokyo, and London
Gotta go, gotta go big city of dreams
But everything out there ain’t always what it seems
Toronto, Berlin
[Interlude: Lee Sissing & Tanya Morgan]
You’re on my mind, until I get back
(Cincinatti) until I get back (NC)
I know I been gone a long time, but I’m coming back
And DC, Brooklyn
You’re on my mind, until I get back
(Cinci) until I get back (NC)
I know I been gone a long time, but I’m coming back
And Maryland, Brooklyn
