lyrics

MY TOWN

I walked out on a blue morning
with the sun rising over my town.
All about was a world yawning
as the dreams dissolved over my town.
Hands in my pocket, collar to the wind
trying to keep the cold out of my bones.
Oil on the pavement, shiny like a skin,
how I love what I see and feel in these old stones.

Shed my coat with sun climbing
and the clouds burning over my town.
Seemed to float like a word rhyming
in the hand of God over my town.
Fools at the office, haven't got a clue
could be anywhere any time of day.
Bright as the morning, baby me and you
lighten up as we go our way
and we posses the day in
my town, my town, my town, my town.

Sleep while the city sleeps, wait till the morning.
Dream while the city dreams of light.
We always have tomorrow,
time we can steal or borrow,
just enough to know that it's all right.

Come with me to the waves breaking
where the sun's pouring into my town.
In the sky there's a world talking
as the birds revolve over my town.
We don't got no money, we don't make the rules,
hang around talking trash and we fade away.
Lord ain't it funny, they think we're the fools
while they turn on a buck and burn their precious lives away in
my town, my town, my town, my town.
