Santa Fe is a song sung by Jack Kelly after he leaves the Jacob's apartment.
This song is preformed by Christian Bale.
Jack Kelly: So that's what they call a family
Mother, father, daughter, son.
Seems like everything you heard about is true.
So you ain't got any family
Well, who says you needed one?
Ain't you glad no body's waitin' up for you?
When I dream, on my own
I'm alone, but I ain't lonely
For a dreamer night's the only time o' day.
When the city's fin'ly sleepin'
All my thoughts begin to stray!
And I'm on a train that's bound for Santa Fe.
And I'm free! Like the wind!
Like I'm gonna live for ever.
It's a feelin' time can't ever take away!
All I need's a few more dollars
And I'm outta here ta stay!
Dreams come true, yeah they do,
In Santa Fe!
Where does it say 'you gotta live and die here'?
Where does it say 's 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, breaking your back
For someone else's sake.
If the life don't seem to suit ya,
How 'bout a change of scene?
Far from the lousy headlines and the deadlines in between!
Santa Fe! Are ya there?
Do ya swear you won't forget me?
If I found ya, would you let me come and stay?
I ain't getting any younger, and I wanna start brand new!
I need space, not just air!
Let 'em laugh in my face I don't care!
Save a place.... I'll be there.
So that's what they call a family.
Ain't ya glad ya ain't that way?
Ain't ya glad you got a dream called, Santa Fe?
