Telephone Wires
by Capen Evans

Verse 1:
Oh my sweet reverie
This little town held me like a prayer
And the water runs delicately
through my veins from ground below

Verse 2:
Its been ten years now
since I stood on this white porch
With signs that said we wouldn’t be coming home

Pre Chorus:
No kind of singing could bring back the light
to this ghost town

Chorus:
Creek road is dark tonight
with a faint shadow from a dim lamplight
No more shoes hanging from the telephone wires, the telephone wires

Verse 3:
Innocence, used to run
round the corner to the local town store
Now it’s broken and rusted with spider web cracks
dancing through lead dusted glass
This is where I had my first kiss
before the water made him sick

Pre chorus:
No kind of singing could bring back the light
to this ghost town
