Lyrics

I came to town wearing mountain roads
I came to town throwing knives
I brought my dreams tied in little bows
Tied to a tattered, battered kite. 

Down on the curb, we talked of mountain roads
We drank a backpack full of wine
You said you lost the pair of wings I stowed
With you the last time I left town. 

We've got to go to the shore
We've got to see those river lights
You know I don't live here anymore
You know I'm only here tonight. 

She only dances with her hair down
Laughs with her eyes like open wounds
She has to kiss so many, many mouths
Her belly's full of empty tombs. 

We've got to go to the shore
We've got to see those river lights
You know I don't live here anymore
You know I'm only here tonight. 

Solo 

We've got to go to the shore
We've got to see those river lights
You know I don't live here anymore
You know I'm only here tonight
You know I'm only here tonight
You know I'm only here tonight.
