They all watched it burn
I’d been watching it for years
All those buildings down on high street
Not too many shed a tear

I was never much for hockey
I think I coulda been a dancer
And those birds that left, way out west
I hope they all found their answers
You can’t find yourself without taking chances

And I wish there was more mystery that surrounded you and me
But this whole town knows us both so well
Our reputation precedes us now
I don’t know why I don’t care how
I could fight it but I know its just as well

I can’t say I miss your street signs
But I miss having those eyes
That used to look with endless wonder
Into the burning pink of the endless living skies, but yeah
Even birds return to the land of living skies

There’ll never be that mystery that surrounded you and me
And this old town will never come around
I coulda I’d made more time for love, instead of always thinking of
The ways that it kept me on the ground
