Lights of Town

from Passing Through by Owen Temple



The red sun's going down, I'll be waiting up again
Wondering where you are tonight
Out with all your friends
And I guess that you don't think about
The home you left behind
But I'd give everything to get you out of my mind

You thought a quiet ranch road
Was good enough back then
But now you need those city lights and bars to go sit in
And I wonder where the old you goes
When all the bars close down
'Cause I can just listen to the crickets sing
but you need the lights of town

The lights of town are blinding you now
You can't even see
That part of you you left behind
When you walked out on me
But when those city lights go dim
and you're left all alone
I wonder if you could find
Your way back home

You forget about the moon in a bar full of neon lights
You can't remember holding hands
On chilly autumn nights
And though it seems to you
That the starts have lost their shine
They're glowing bright as ever darling
Past the city limits sign


In the middle of the night I sometimes watch the road
I see the headlights move on past
And I shiver from the cold
By now the doors are locked downtown
And still no sign of you
The lights of town have broke the heart
That loved you once so true
