Ricky

lyrics

He’s looking for an education, so he says to me;
Yeah I’ve got a lot of circumstances, that’s why I’m wearing this rosary.
He’s got a lot of family you see, down in Mexico.
He told me that his dad is in jail, and that he doesn’t want to fail,
I can see it in his eyes, he’s scared.

Then he said I wanna be a dancer, I wanna sing my songs.
I’ve been looking for the answer, but everyone has different ones.
If you’re looking for a way out, you seek a hole with a key,
You’ll be looking forever, Ricky.

You’ve got a lot of complications, you want to break away (break away)
So you want to go to San Francisco and study at the university
You’ve got a lot of friends here you see, but you wanna leave (but you wanna leave)
Just because your dad is in jail, doesn’t mean that you are going to fail,
I can hear it in your voice, you’re scared.

So I said you’ve always been a dancer, ever since you were young.
You’ve been looking for the answer, but everyone has different ones.
If you’re looking for a way out, you seek a hole with a key,
You’ll be looking forever, Ricky.

Don’t focus your energy, boy, on escaping.
You don’t understand the implications of the choices you’re making
You’re running away, don’t go running away because..

If you’re looking for a way out, you seek a hole with a key,
you’ll be looking forever. I’ve been looking forever.
