leafhound lyrics – saint etienne

[intro sample:]
i wish they wouldn’t laugh.

i’ve been driving for some time / and the towns look the same. /
this town feels very different, / as though i’ve been here before. /
this looks like the old school-yard where we both used to play. /
and the kids in that building, / they look just like our friends. /

something about / this place / makes me lose a grip on time and sp*ce. /
i haven’t seen you for years, / but i feel you could be here right now. /
and i know it’s strange, / yes i know it’s strange, / that you could be here with me now. /

days spent staring at highways, / strange effects on the brain. /
i can tell i’m not dreaming, / i know i’m wide awake! /
i’m sure i saw the theatre / that burnt down in `83 – /
and i followed the harley / that had your number-plate. /

something about this place / makes me lose a grip on time and sp*ce. /
i haven’t seen you for years, / but i feel you could be here right now. /
and i know it’s strange, / yes i know it’s strange, / that you could be here with me now. /

[whispers:] there’s something about this place…
