Our Town lyrics

(m. crenshaw)

I hear something in the sounds that surround me
That only seems to remind me
That Im lost and longing for a different place and time
I wanna be walking down the avenue
Tall buildings staring down on me and you
But all I have is pictures running through my mind
Sunlight dying
People rushing madly all around
Sirens crying
Gotta grab the next thing back to our town
Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground
Do you remember the promise I gave you?
The one I swore I would hold to
Well youre there,
Im here and everything I said was wrong
So were not out with the crowd nights
Not walking under the bright lights
All I can do is dream about it all night long.
Chorus: (as above)
Its the place where we keep our hopes and dreams
The place where I lost my heart it seems
All people looking for danger and romance
Drop by there while you still have the chance
cause its all gonna tumble down
Its gonna shake apart and crumble to the ground.
