"Lost in Boston" - Nick Barrows

 
Lost in Boston in sideways rain
so hard so much sideways rain
so much sideways cold
miles away from found
safe trip safe trip no
bad trip bad trip
just lost sight cuz so much sideways rain
Lost in Boston
so much sideways
rain sideways rain
this rain is so sideways cold
lost in Boston
beginning a new beginning again
so much lost in Boston
down here lost on this fishermans wharf
so rainy near great restaurants to eat by the seaside
at warehouses now new warehouses
new places to eat
lost hear in lost sideways rain
so cold so far from you
all these restaurants on this pretty old fisherman wharf
Miles away from problems
miles away from found
soon coming home to a clean house
soon coming home to an elegant dinner
soon coming home to a precious party
now just gone in Boston
Extravagant Boston on the wharf
these new warehouses
these new restaurants
restaurants in warehouses lost in Boston
here no problems
no big family problems
no life changing problems
no problems
just sideways rain
sideways cold
struggling with the sideways
we rejoice with new hip warehouses
here lost in Boston
all these new restaurants
all these new hip places
lost in this Boston
staggering in these fishermen’s streets
staggering between these warehouses
No problems in Boston
just cool cool Boston
drinking in Boston
this cool cool Boston
drinking with X punk rock girls in Boston
drinking with new work patriot’s in Boston
this cool Boston
drinking in this cold Boston
no problems here in Boston
engaging in Boston
learning in Boston
just getting shit done in Boston
drinking in cold cold Boston 
Wishing I was home
