Edges: A Song Cycle Musical Soundtrack Lyrics

Monticello Lyrics
Nothing ever happens in Monticello
Let's give a hand for the land of buried dreams
Cause when you hang your hat in Monticello
You end up like your dad
And it's really as sad as it seems

Carol at the diner tried to be a singer
Mark still swears he'll end up on TV
Everyone has plans for something greater
But they never leave town
They just let themselves drown
But I won't be pulled down
Not Me

Someday I'll pack up my things and move on
Move on
One day
They'll come looking for me
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'm gonna ditch this life and never return
And I won't look back
Because I'll finally learn
How it feels to be under a limitless sky
I'm gonna kiss Indiana goodbye

I'll give my two weeks notice at the Rite Aid
I'll sell my baseball cards to make some cash
I'll leave a note for mom that says "I love you."
And I'll be gone with no trace
I'll be out of this place in a flash
I'll start by heading west on Highway 80
Hit every Steak'n'Shake on the way
I'll drive a couple days
Until I end up in California
Then find fortune and fame
Receive massive acclaim
They'll wonder how I became the toast of LA

Someday I'll pack up my things and move on
Move on
One day
They'll come looking for me
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'm gonna ditch this life and never return
And I won't look back
Because I'll finally learn
How it feels to be handed my piece of the pie
I'm gonna kiss Indiana goodbye

I know this might sound crazy
But I'm not like other people
And though settling for less is fine for some
If I keep treading water here I nowhere Indiana
I know exactly who I will become

Maybe this whole plan seems just a bit unrealistic
But I'm not saying I could leave today
I'll stay a couple years
And save enough to really do this
That's when I'll see
What more I can be

Someday I'll pack up my things and move on
Move on
One day real soon they'll come looking for me
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I refuse to stay and act like it's fine
You can keep this life
Because it sure isn't mine
I can't wait around until the day that I die
I won't miss you Indiana
I'm gonna kiss you goodbye
