My Town

lyrics

I didn’t think you would feel it
We left when you were still young
Of all the things you remembered
Of all the things that you’ve learned

You’re uncle’s house by the city
The road that leads to the bay
The day we walked to the church and saw
Your great grandmother’s grave

And I remember the feeling
From long before you were born
Something I missed on the East coast
The way you know you’re at home

Down the streets after midnight
The yellow lights set the stage
There’s the alleyway you’re daddy used to walk down
To sing your mother sweet serenades

I’ve been round
I’ve been all around
I’ve been around
But it’s my hometown

Something about summer evenings
That last you all through the year
Sometimes our memories are cloudy
But we both wish she was here

There’s broken glass on the pavement
Shining like the milky way
You’re much too young to remember
But it was ten years ago to the day

I’ve been round
I’ve been all around
I’ve been around
But it’s my hometown

You got her voice and you got her grace
The way your eyes light up to the radio
The way we used to sing you songs
I gave you the Rolling Stones but she gave you Nina Simone

I’ve been round
I’ve been all around
I’ve been around
But it’s my hometown
