THIS PART OF TOWN

Hold your memories

‘Cause nothin’ will replace ‘em

Like a meadow in the breeze

Or the towns we were escapin’

Folks like you and me

We land here when we’re runnin’

The floor is cold but rent is cheap

And the cupboard’s full of nothin’

 

And I know you just wanna fix up babe

Talk about somethin’ else

But I just want to take you down

No I don’t care too much, anymore, for this part of town

 

There’s garbage in the streets

And the window blinds are broken

Faded like your jeans

And the words that we have spoken

Like you were to me

You knew the clouds meant somethin’

Strange you couldn’t see

The storms and they were comin’

 

And I know you just wanna fix up babe

Talk about somethin’ else

But I just want to take you down

No I don’t care too much, anymore, for this part of town

 

I told you I would leave

Without no hesitation

A man can find a ride

Any day to western stations

And I won’t start a fight

That I lost long ago

Darlin’ you were right

But I ain’t livin’ here alone

 

And I know you just wanna fix up babe

Talk about somethin’ else

But I just wanna tear you down

No I don’t care too much, anymore, for this part of town
