Lyrics

Well you wouldn't even recognize this town now
Time whipped through and blew it all away
There's a clinic where we used to buy our records
There's a scrapbook store inside our old cafe

Now a Starbucks serves their grande mochaccinos
To the squirrley-eyed commuters on the street
And the pretty faces huddle in their raincoats
While our places wash away beneath their feet

    Well it's so damn hard just to keep in touch with a city on the rise
    It changes every time you close your eyes
    Always trying to keep up with the things that you can't see
    So why don't you just keep in touch with me
    Why don't you just keep in touch with me

Well the drive-in movies left this last September
And the megaplex, it opened last July
The park we used to walk in is the same now
But no one's got the time to wander by

The busses scatter bodies in a patchwork
And you climb up to the 32nd floor
Where the city is a tapestry of progress
But it's always wanting just a little more

    [chorus]

Well this city seems to change with every season
You close your eyes a moment and it's twisted and it's twirled
But when I call you on the phone, your voice it brings me home
At least there's something constant in this world

    [chorus x 2]

How can this be a reject???? I LOVE this. Maybe when you're 60 it will mean something more!
