Columbus, Ohio in Concertina Videos & Music Posted May 5, 2014 Nicely performed, but I can't say I'm taken by the lyrics. I spent a summer in Columbus (working for Ohio Bell Telephone), and I didn't find it worse than other cities, nor depressing, boring, or otherwise worth avoiding in its own right. I've never been there myself (except for passing through on I-70). But I don't think the song is meant to imply that there's anything objectively bad about the city. It's more about feeling stuck, about needing a change in your life but lacking the will to make it happen.
