Dear Home Town Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

No one knows what's waiting where you go
Nothings certain but the fact that you're leaving
But still you roam from the straight and narrow road
Riding nothing but the lies that you believe in

Frame after frame, the pictures still remain
Photographs of all the hearts you've broken
Frozen in time are the ghosts you left behind
Waiting for the words you left unspoken

Dear home town, I never meant to let you down
When I sold my soul for a song
The dreams are to blame, they still linger and remain
In the heart of a child who's been gone, dear home town

Tell the girl, it's a wide and wondrous world
Room enough to leave a life your hating
The highway runs both ways and there's seat's left on the train
If you take it to the station, I'll be waiting

Tell my ma that I miss her lovin' smile
Tell my father that I really miss his laughter
Tell my sisters and brothers, my friends and all the others
That we'll meet in the sweetest hereafter

Songwriters
Alan Thomas Doyle;Randy Bachman
