The Train Wreck Endings

My Old Hometown

Andy Hawk & The Train Wreck Endings
Andy Hawk


A stranger on familiar streets

Walking fast and incomplete

Looking like old times

I want to wave goodbye

To my old hometown


The river floods my last hurrah

The saddest smile I ever saw

It cracks your wanderlust

to pocketfuls of dust

My old hometown


Spinning gold to straw

Snow that never thaws

I feel my life’s a hand-me-down

In my old hometown


There’s a frozen wishing well

And a broken carousel

Our crooked days are long

the whiskey’s straight and strong

In my old hometown


Days twist away

Dreams get delayed

It always seems to be sundown

In my old hometown
