lyrics

I left the city,
Drove south of town.
Watched reflections of tears roll down her cheeks,
But why would she question what we've both known.

Still she remembers me
She even swore to me
When I'm feeling weak I could seek her out,
But I can't stay.

Oh, to go back home and find her just as I had known.

You'll find it hidden there beyond
The trees my father planted in the lawn
When I was just a
When I was only just a boy.
My mother's necklace lies sunk into the rising clay.

When your mother called to tell you that
You won't be welcome home,
Well I don't care what she says.
Shine your bright lights on our body when the fire burns away.
Then we'll rip up the streets and the sidewalks and
Burn each bridge we cross
When we come back through the town.
We'll both take one last look around
And shake the dust from both of our heels.
Then it falls to the ground.

Oh, to go back home and find her just as I had known.

You'll find it hidden there beyond
The trees my father planted in the lawn
When I was just a
When I was only just a boy.
My mother necklace lies sunk into the rising...

We all were hidden there beyond
The trees but one day soon we'll all be gone
And I am just a
Still I am only just a boy.
My mother's necklace lies sunk into the rising clay.
