Written shortly before my departure for Germany. At that time it was highly uncertain if I would ever return to live in St. Louis, although I ended up coming back after all.


I'm leaving Saint Louis for the last time
I've finally hit the end of the line
Time to head off and find a new home
I hate to say it but I've got to move on
Maybe one day I'll find my way back
See my friends and the familiar sights
Relive the memories of a good life
Restore the bonds that had been so strong

I'll miss the parks and the streets I walked on
I'll miss the restaurants at which I loved to eat
I'll miss my college where I spent all my time
I'll miss the city for all the little things
I'll miss the arch that I rarely looked at
I'll miss the bars that I never went in
I'll miss the river that never smelled nice
I'll miss the suburbs that kept on sprawling

I'll miss my friends that taught me so much
I'll miss the places where we used to hang out
I'll miss my brother and all his crazy films
I'll miss my cat and the scars he'd give me
I'll miss the girl I fell in love with
I'll miss the nights we stayed up so late
I'll miss the mornings when we stayed in bed
I'll miss the everything we shared together
