We grew up in Toronto and now we're far away
Keeping cozy in the west, still waiting for the day
That we don't have to write call-out posts about how we've been abused
Why is it so hard to love someone and not be used

There are pockets of community, but all in all it's shit
It took a while to realize that we don't really fit
Into this great big city, where we feel so alone
So we set off for the ocean to find a place to call our own

We'll find a little mountain and we'll climb right to the top
We'll grow our own vegetables and there won't be any cops
We'll build a little cabin and we'll live with all our friends
We'll make our own community and our hearts soon will mend

There isn't any snow, but instead it rains all day
The winters aren't as cold, but the sky is often grey
Reality is bittersweet and it tends to bring us down
But it helps to know when times are tough, there's friendship to be found

We'll sing about our dreams, in the hopes that they'll come true
And even if they don't there will still be me and you
So we'll take off to our mountaintop and leave this all behind
Let the moonbeams clear our clouded thoughts and cleanse our weary minds


And we're never going back
No, we're never going back
Cuz when we work together there is nothing we can't do
No, we're never going back
