I Had To Leave Them Behind

I moved away from the city I grew up in years ago , I had to , or believe it was the best thing to do . I did enough to hold myself back , getting somewhere in life , but my friends , though I loved 'em , they facilitated my arrested development . Since leaving , a few more have died from drugs and alchohol . and I don't know if any ever got themselves together any moved on . I can't say that I burned my bridges behind me , merely abandoned those bridges and the people they lead to .
