dear home town lyrics – great big sea

“dear home town”

no one knows,
what’s waiting; where you go.
nothings certain but the fact:
that you’re leaving.
still, you roam,
from the straight and narrow road,
riding nothing but the lies,
that you believe in.

frame after frame,
the pictures all remain..
photographs of all the hearts you’ve broken.
frozen in time,
are the ghosts you left behind,
waiting for the words you left unspoken.

ho no no!

dear home town..
i never meant to let you down,
when i sold my soul for a song.
dreams are to blame,
they still linger and remain,
in the heart of a child who’s been gone.
dear home town.

tell the girl:
it’s a wide and wondrous world,
there’s room enough,
to leave a life your hating.
and the highway runs both ways,
and there’s seats left on the train,
and if you take it to the station,
i’ll be waiting.

ho no no!

dear home town..
i never meant to let you down,
when i sold my soul for a song.
dreams are to blame,
they still linger and remain,
in the heart of a child who’s been gone.
dear home town.

and tell my mom:
i miss her lovin’ smile,
and tell my father:
i really miss his laughter.
tell my sisters and my brothers,
tell my friends and all the others,
that we’ll meet in the sweetest hereafter.

ho no no no no no nooo!

dear home town..
i never meant to let you down,
when i sold my soul for a song.
dreams are to blame,
they still linger and remain,
in the heart of a child who’s been gone.

dear home town..
i never meant to let you down,
when i sold my soul for a song.
dreams are to blame,
they still linger and remain,
in the heart of a child who’s been gone.
dear home town.

[break-down scat singing]

dear home town.
