My Town

(back)                                                                    (listen / download)

Head to toe he wears his cotton black
All alone he walks on down the track
In his mind the self reflection spins
Try his nerves and he’ll feel all your sins

Look to the skies dear, we’re not the same
Look in my eyes dear, that’s not my name
You think that you know me, yeah you’ve seen me around
But I’m older than you are, and this ain’t my town

Been away and missed the summer heat
Now he’s back to walk the winter street
Enemies and friends alike surprised
He returned a different kind of guise

Look to the skies dear, we’re not the same
Look in my eyes dear, that’s not my name
You think that you know me, yeah you’ve seen me around
But I’m older than you are, and this ain’t my town

Every night the streetlight shadows dance
In his mind the trick: intrinsic chance
Been away and missed the summer dreams
Has his own, a drink from summer streams
