This Town Lyrics - Gretchen Peters

Release information
Release Date: 2007-4-9
length: 3:12
This town is a lot like me
Sadder and wiser than it used to be
A little sprawled out, a little rundown
I wonder what's gonna become of this town

This town has its highs and lows
And a hole in the middle where nobody goes
People come through but they don't hang around
Nobody wants to get to the heart of this town

This town has its own sweet charms
Open your heart and it'll open its arms
Take you by the hand and show you around
There's still a lot of life left in this town

All that I can see is lovers kissing in the street
Swaying to the beat of a rusty radio
All that I can hear another late night symphony
The sound of traffic moving like an undertow

This town can't get no rest
Everybody thinks that they know best
They're either building it up or they're tearing it down
They can't seem to love it like it is, this town

All I wanna do tonight is kiss you in the street
Swaying to the beat of a rusty radio
All I wanna do is feel your arms around me too
Pullin' on my body like an undertow

This town is a lot like me
A little coat of paint and some TLC
And she'll light right up if you come around
You know that you never wanna leave this town
