Them Some Back Roads

lyrics

i can see the faces change as the sun goes down
reflections shine from window panes
they’re keeping me awake
on bedroom walls they’re painting lines
i see lateral misconduct every time

small apartment, low light glow
when it breaks i know my face won’t stay the same

every time i turn around
i can see the outline of a shadow now
the blinds could never keep
every time i make a sound
i can hear the remnants of a cry out loud
the blinds could never keep it out
i dream but i can’t sleep

i'm ignoring life to spread my wings
ever time i see the sun fade in
street lamp insomniac, wasting time and all of that
i know it’s not the best of things

i know i won’t stay the same
every night when the sun goes down
i’ll remove the windows from their frames
shoot out ever light that brings me back to that
small apartment, the low light glow
and when it breaks i hope my face won’t stay the same
the blinds will never keep it out

it’s the summer of sam cest la vie
sweeping softly through the city
if there were sleeping hearts they wouldn’t go far there’d be no room for all this pity
but we know the answer’s around the bend
when life is brimmed by loss then tell me
are we heaven sent

it’s the i don’t care sensibility, the driving force of this city
the creme de la creme fallacy that’s only spoken softly

in this summer of sam
if there were sleeping hearts they wouldn’t go far
i know we won’t stay the same
every night when the faces change
