13. Shasta

Just Kids
by Mat Kearney



 

Hometown remind me
Where I come from
Before the days of the hit and run
Running from the blue lights
Jumping trains at midnight
Never more alone or more alive
Hat tricks in the stadium
Baby look how far weíve come
Casualties are littered all the way

Cause weíve got miles left to go
To the place that I donít know
You told me the ground was gold
But I canít see it
One last time through the woods
In my old neighborhood
It tastes so bittersweet
I canít believe it

Hands in the cement
Stickers on the ceiling
Falling asleep to the werewolves
Pocket clutch on the VW
Throwing pebbles at your window
As we roll away in the pouring rain
College Hill water tower lights
Singing out in the holy night
Lord tell me youíre not done with me yet

Weíve got miles left to go
To the place that I donít know
You told me the ground was gold
But I canít see it
One last time through the woods
In my old neighborhood
It tastes so bittersweet
I canít believe it

Innocence yeah it dies slowly
Weíre all falling in the Glory
Innocence yeah it dies slowly
Weíre all falling down
Hometown remind me
where i come from
before the days of hit and run
The moss and the pine trees
I can taste the caffeine
How the fire replays when you look at me
