Smalltown
Tell me where oh where has summer gone

It hasn't come this year

You always cry when swallows fly

With doubts in search of dreams

He's a working man

Can't you understand

And he sweats for a mans release

But you've seen the lie

In the children's eyes

As heroes turn to tears



It's the same old scene it's always been

Men flex muscle fast

And men pull punches after hours

When the moments spell is cast

So you take your chance

At the smalltown dance

Where romances is up and gone

It's Friday night

You're another man wife

And you waltz that lie till dawn



Tell me where oh were has summer gone

It hasn't come this year

You always cry when swallows fly

They confirm your darkest fears

When a bottle strikes

Down one mans life

And his children's lives as well

The full moon pulls you

Many times

To the outer edge of hell



Tell me how

This life won't let you go

Tell me how

This same old fool

Keeps coming back to you
