Marshall Crenshaw Our Town Lyrics

sponsored links
I hear something in the sounds that surround me.
That only seems to remind me,
That I'm lost and longing for a different place and time.
I want to be walking down the avenue,
Tall buildings staring down on me and you.
But all I have is pictures running through my mind.

Sunlight dying.
People rushing madly all around.
Sirens crying.
Gotta grab the next thing back to our town,
Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground.
Do you remember the promise I gave you,
The one I swore I would hold to?
Well you're there,
I'm here, and everything I said was wrong.
So we're not out with the crowd nights,
Not walking under the bright lights.
All I can do is dream about it, all night long.


It's the place where we keep our hopes and dreams,
The place where I lost my heart it seems.
All people looking for danger and romance.
Drop by there while you still have the chance,
'Cause it's all gonna tumble down.
It's gonna shake apart, and crumble to the ground.
