about

From time to time, we all find ourselves captured by nostalgia. Places, people and pursuits that were once a part of us creep into our minds. It seems like joy and contentment come from some sort of reconciliation of nostalgia.

lyrics

I watch you from far away
though my ear is pressed
I can't hear what you say
I just see you fall away
and though I'm screaming,
you can't hear a thing I say

She's caught in a house on fire
and the smoke it billows like the liar
that touched and hurt and broke his wife and kids
She's running out again
to another boy who's just like him
with beady eyes and filth caught in his grin

Now I look back on yesterday
and my smile is scarred by the things I didn't say
All that life won't just pass away
it sneaks and lingers into the wake of each day

She's caught in a house on fire
and the smoke it billows like the liar
that touched and hurt and broke his wife and kids
She's running out again
to another boy who's just like him
with beady eyes and filth caught in his grin

The stars frame her silhouette as she looks down
She begs me to rescue her from this town
