Lyrics
There’s the road
Where I learned to dream
And fell in love with something deep in me
That said this town just wasn’t big enough

Donut Shop
Where the old folks they still to go to talk
Well I wonder if I left a mark
And if they’d recognize me

Well I’m just a stranger in a strange town
Where the stars are the same and sun beats down
It was kind enough to give me all I need
I just hope I stay, long enough to be a memory

I started out
A thousand miles away from my childhood
Got a job and it payed pretty good
Fell in love with being free

Learned to live
On red wine and a broken heart
When that first love of mine fell apart
That’s when I found myself in need

Well I was a stranger in a strange town
Where the stars were the same and sun beats down
It was kind enough to give me all I need
And I just hope I stay, long enough to be a memory

Well halfway through three weeks out on the road
Where gypsy heart has a mind of its own
Just counting down the days ‘til it brings me back home
But tonight, yeah tonight

Tonight I’m just a stranger in a strange town
Where the stars are the same and sun beats down
You were kind enough to give me all I need
I just hope I stay, long enough to be a memory
Long enough to be a memory
Long enough to be a memory
