X Ambassadors – Your Town Lyrics

X Ambassadors Your Town Lyrics

New Years at the Chanticleer and I just signed my record deal
Someone’s singing karaoke, just a Townie playing make-believe
There you were, spinning ’round in your cardboard crown
You said, “Congrats, you made it out,” but

Don’t forget about your town
Don’t forget where you came from
‘Cause first you’re up then you’re down
Come crashing back to Earth and there’s
No one around

Don’t forget about the pain
Of being young and forgotten
And when you’re up on that stage
At the top of your game
Don’t forget who taught you to play
Don’t forget about me

I was just another shy kid on the playground till you came around
Had big ideas and bigger dreams that no one seemed to give a shit about
There you were, you said, “If you’ve got a song, well, sing it loud”
You told me someday I’d make it out, but

Don’t forget about your town
Don’t forget where you came from
‘Cause first you’re up then you’re down
Come crashing back to Earth and there’s
No one around

Don’t forget about the pain
Of being young and forgotten
And when you’re up on that stage
At the top of your game
Don’t forget who taught you to play
Don’t forget about me
Don’t forget about me

Found a voicemail that you left me back in 2017
You said, “I’m sorry you don’t call me more, I guess you’re just too busy for me
But they were playing your song in the CVS downtown
And I just called to say, I’m so proud”

I won’t forget about my town
And I won’t forget where I came from
‘Cause I’ve been up, I’ve been down
Came crashing back to Earth
But you’re not around
