We’re growing up.
And we can’t stop this.
And all I hear is the voice of Hoppus singing “Going Away To College”.
And if I’m being honest, I’m a little bit upset
that we never even got to go on tour before we left.

I packed my guts into this suitcase
with just a handful of extra picks and a little bit of toothpaste,
because that’s all I’ll need when I’m halfway across the country.
It’s time to leave, but can I come back in a month please?

Maybe I should keep my head up.
Maybe this isn’t a bad thing.
Maybe I’ll just sort of disappear and everyone will forget me.
I keep telling myself that leaving your friends behind is normal.
But if there’s sixteen-thousand kids on campus,
then why do I feel so alone?

How’s Chicago doing?
Is she better?
Does she miss me?
I’m a thousand miles away.
It’s like a part of me is missing.
Is she getting all my postcards?
Is she even fucking listening?
I would kill to spend just one more night
on the pier over Lake Michigan.

But, hey. I’m a thousand miles away.
And shit never looked so gray.
I’m a thousand miles away.
But I’ll be back again someday.

I’ll be home in a few days.
