Old Town

lyrics

I keep my troubles
in a box with no label
and stumble upon it
under the table
where I cast aside
all the worries of mine
and I rush to find
a quick place to hide
as the show passes through
and the band's all abloom
with their marching drums
and big balloons
I am one man too small
in a world that is huge
and I miss the time
when I was too

So would you take me out of this old town
'cause I could stand to lose the memories
and I swear I would never turn around
I could stand to lose the memories
I could stand to lose the memories

And I tire of waiting
my mind is impatiently
harboring all
of these thoughts I'm evading
and I wonder when I
will find myself thinking
about anything other
than things that aren't changing
but I've got a habit
and habits are hard to break
harder than anything
harder than anything

So would you take me out of this old town
'cause I could stand to lose the memories
and I swear I would never turn around
I could stand to lose the memories
I could stand to lose the memories
