Folks we finally got our headline
Newsies Crushed as Bull's attack
Crutchie's calling me dumb crip's just too damn slow
Guys are fightin' bleedin' fallin' thanks to good ole' captain Jack
Captain Jack just wants to close his eyes and go
Let me go far away
Somewhere they won't ever find me
And tomorrow won't remind me of today and the city's finally sleepin'
And the moon looks old and grey
I get on a train that's bound for Santa Fe
And I'm gone and I'm done no more running no more lying
No more fat old man denying me my pay
Just a moon so big and yellow it turns night right into day
Dreams come true yeah they do in Santa Fe
Where does it say you gotta live and die here?
Where does it say a guy can't catch a break?
Why should you only take what you're given?
Why should you spend your whole life livin'
Trapped where there ain't no future even at seventeen
Breakin' your back for someone else's sake
If the life don't seem to suit you how 'bout a change of scene?
Far from the lousy headlines and the deadlines in between
Santa Fe my old friend
I can't spend my whole life dreamin'
Though I know that's all I seem inclined to do
I ain't gettin' any younger and I wanna start brand new
I need space and fresh air
Let 'em laugh in my face
I don't care
Save my place
I'll be there
Just be real is all I'm askin'
Not some paintin' in my head
'Cos I'm dead if I can't count on you today
I got nothin' if I ain't got
