lyrics

Well the hill across the street seemed a world away
We’d disappear around the corner be gone all day
Santa Ana winds blowin’ right in our face
And yet I guess I just thought this was any old place

A thousand oaks on a hundred hills
Open spaces and childhood thrills
Anywhere I go, don’t matter where
Yeah I’ll always be from there

Well the pedals of a bike could take you any place
Yet it always felt like it was uphill both ways
Then we started to drive and we drove away
I guess I always figured I’d come back someday

A thousand oaks on a hundred hills
Open spaces and childhood thrills
Anywhere I go, don’t matter where
Yeah I’ll always be from there

They say you can’t go back home, at least that’s what I hear
But I tried to go back there anyway, home just wasn’t there

Well a thousand oaks gave this town it’s name
There’s still one down at city hall, at least that’s what they say
And the hill across the street’s got tennis courts
And a long, long driveway you can’t see down, of course

A thousand oaks on a hundred hills
Open spaces and childhood thrills
It’s not that way now, but I don’t care
I’ll always be from there
I’ll always be from there
