Pretty self-explanatory, a song for my hometown.

lyrics

“Bayous”

Going down to Houston
Going to my home
There’s no sayin how I’ve been
Away and on my own
And I never knew it
‘Till I went away
Just how much I missed it
This hot and sweaty place
Oh the bayous of Houston
Doesn’t matter where I’ve been
When I sit down under that old bridge downtown
Then I know I’m coming home again

I never knew somebody
To feel the way I do
But I’m sure there’s something
That feels this way for you
I’ve been to the edges
Of the world I know
When I see their waters
I feel I’m back at home
Oh the bayous of Houston
Love your brackish waters brown
Feel like no one loves you quite the way I do
I won’t ever let them put you down

Going to the bayou
Got ourselves some wine
There ain’t nothing we gotta do
Got ourselves some time
There’s a full moon rising up above the road
Yeah I’ll take this with me everywhere I go
Oh the bayous of Houston
Lord I love waters brown
Feel like no one loves you quite the way I do
I won’t ever let them put you down
Oh the bayous of Houston
Doesn’t matter where I’ve been
When I sit down under that old bridge downtown
Then I know I’m coming home again
