Leaving Oldtown

lyrics

I'm leaving Oldtown
With no direction, learning how to be alone
Learning how to stand on my own two feet
I’m getting good now
A recollection, hollow as a sparrow bone
Mythic as the stories our parents told

It’s getting colder
The days are shorter
It’s not the season for the road
Blow out the candle
Pack up your bedroll
I think it’s time to go

I’m leaving old town
I’m bags and boxes, hand me downs and borrowed rooms
Still hoping to be loved anew
I need a new town
Where no-one knows me, no-one heeds a thing i do
And no-one’s ever heard of you

It’s getting colder
The days are shorter
It’s not the season for the road
Blow out the candle
Pack up your bedroll
I think it’s time to go

I need a new town
I need a new town

It’s getting colder
The days are shorter
It’s not the season for the road
Blow out the candle
Pack up your bedroll
She says it’s time to go

I'm leaving Oldtown
I'm leaving Oldtown
