From the musical Chance the Snapper (Concept and Book by Rose Freeman, Book, Music, and Lyrics by Spicer W. Carr).
Based on a true story: It’s July 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. An alligator (named Chance the Snapper) is spotted in Humboldt Park lagoon, captivating the Windy City. As one park’s official, Kadie Crokodowski (Urbs in Horto), works with Chance to find home and fight city corruption (particularly one oily alderman), we learn the meaning of allyship, friendship, community, and home.
In this song Kadie confesses her loneliness to Chance, how she longs for community, and speculates that maybe her home town isn’t for her.
