He says his goodbyes full of joy,
A one way ticket for this young boy,
Bright lights, late nights all wait ahead
A dream he paints within his head,
The city never sleeps for the hopeful youth,
But what waits ahead is the hardened truth,
Leaving surburgatory for a place unknown,
The rest of his story is yet to be told.

A year gone by his dreams are blown,
All on his own he dreams of home,
His laugh his smile hide many a lie,
No longer a boy, this man watches his aspirations die,
So he was king for a day but threw it all away,
The city that made him no longer cared,
Dragged him down, he was so unaware,
Forgot what made this adventure so adorning,
He screams out loud long live the king.
