From the album Heaven On Earth

Lyrics

When I was sixteen crossing the line was the thing to do
Those hot summer nights with a six pack and a long drive
Man we thought we were cool
Just past where the sky ran out of stars
We'd park and talk of days to come
All those well laid plans of ours
Of getting out of here
And becoming someone

Yeah I used to be that girl
Nothing here could make me stay
Traded small town life
For those big city lights
But thoughts of home were never far away
Where people know your name
Put up a hand to wave
No theres no better place in this world
Yeah I used to be that girl

Population sign now reads three hundred eighty strong
Take Graceland road past Bushman's farm and you'll see my place
Just at the edge of town
It's kind of small and needs fixing up
Oh but that don't bother me
That ol' apartment never felt this warm
The city life and I we just don't agree

Yeah I used to be that girl
Nothing here could make me stay
Traded small town life
For those big city lights
But thoughts of home were never far away
Where people know your name
Put up a hand to wave
No theres no better place in this world

Yeah I used to be that girl
Nothing here could make me stay
Traded small town life
For those big city lights
But thoughts of home were never far away
Where people know your name
Put up a hand to wave
No theres no better place in this world
Yeah I used to be that girl
