5 to 1 lyrics – tom kimmel

Loading...

well i took a little spin though the old side of town
i went to see if things had maybe changed somehow
cause everybody’s sayin’ how a change is due
i guess i went to see if i’m changin’ too

well the greyhound station is a place to eat
and new shops open up and down the street
but just around the corner it’s a loaded gun
and b-ms over hookers maybe 5 to 1

yeah the line at the mission’s still a good block long
it’s a juke box loaded with the same old songs
it sounds no better this time around
it hurt some then, it hurts some now

and you can hear ’em singin’
lean on me,then let me lean on you
we’re gonna go down swingin’ if it’s all we do
we’ll fall here trying like it’s our last stand
or cross this river to the promised land

a fresh coat’s painted on the old high school
but it doesn’t really hide what the girl’s been through
and just around the corner where we used to run
it’s bars on the windows when the day is done

yeah it’s bars over churches maybe 5 to 1
i don’t see how a lot of savin’ gets done
is all this talk of turning old to new
a back-beat rhythm for the old soft-shoe?

cause you can hear ’em singin’
lean on me,then let me lean on you
we’re gonna go down swingin’ if it’s all we do
we’ll fall here trying like it’s our last stand
or cross this river to the promised land

the trains from the city kinda fade away
the cops h-t the streets to keep the merchandise safe
a black cat’s shadow of a night’s begun
a real homecoming for a native son

well i took a little spin through the old side of town
i went to see if things had maybe changed somehow
cause everybody’s callin’ this a dream come true
i guess i went to see if i’m dreamin’ too

cause you can hear ’em singin’
lean on me,then let me lean on you
we’re gonna go down swingin’ if it’s all we do
we’ll fall here trying like it’s our last stand
or cross this river to the promised land
