This Town (Hurley/J-F)

lyrics

This Town. Lyrics - Joe Hurley

As I lay there dreaming of the, days we lay there, dreaming in our bed
The kitchen bare and empty, but the Broadway stage, we were gonna paint it red
And outside, the station, where Kojak saved this crazy town
We took one big step forward, then turned around, turned around

This town will burn you out, this town will spin you around
This town has no way out, this town will take you down

Then the night crept up quickly, the director laughed, said you got something to sell
He fed you lines, and i found out, we fell into a private hell

This town has burned you out, like dead neon on a wire
You'll crack and fade away, just one more body in the fire

I want to feel your face again
I want to forget the other men
I want to trust you one more time
I want to swim in holy wine

And now the city sleeps, it's skyline doesn't, move me anymore
I heard that you found Jesus, in Hell's kitchen, passed out on the floor
What happenned to my vow, that I would never cling onto the past
Maybe I'll just shut the windows, and turn on the gas

This town has burned me out, this town has spun me around
This town has cut my throat , and left me rivers to drown in
