lyrics

written by: jakob dylan

so long ago, i don’t remember when
that’s when they say i lost my only friend
they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
i listened through the cemetery trees
i’ve seen the sun coming up at the funeral at dawn
the long broken arm of human law
now it always seemed such a waste
she always had a pretty face
i wondered how she hung around this place
hey, come on try a little
nothing is forever
there’s got to be something better than in the middle
but me & Cinderella
can put it all together
we can drive it home with one headlight
she said it’s cold
it feels like Independence Day
and i can’t break away from this parade
there’s got to be an opening somewhere here in front of me
through this maze of ugliness and greed
I’ve seen the sun up ahead at the country line bridge
saying all there’s good and nothingness is dead
we’ll run until she’s out of breath
she ran until there’s nothing left
she hit the end
it’s just her window ledge
this place is old, it feels just like a beat up truck
i turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turn
well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
this place is always such a mess
sometimes i think i’d like to watch it burn
i’m so alone
i feel just like somebody else
man, i ain’t changed, but i know i ain’t the same
but somewhere here inbetween the city walls of dying dreams
i think her death, it must be killing me
