Lyrics

that old beach sign's a little ragged right now
they're wrapping up boats tearing life guard chairs down
winter is coming, batten 'em down
days are getting shorter

there's a little brown church where the door always creeks
and the jukebox is playing at Dan's bar up the street
There's something here for saints and for sinners like me
night's are getting longer

This is my Town
For better or worse
it's the one place on earth that keeps pulling me back
In my town
we give second chances we're hopeless romantics like that
And it's not just the memories of those that I've known
or the ghosts of the loves that I've had
this is my town

It's hard to know heaven through hell sometimes
we've all had a little of both in our lives
when it hits your neighbor you help them get by
yellow ribbons flying

it's a drive up a hill it's a drink on a porch
it's the colors and shapes of old victorian doors
it takes a village and what's mine is yours
and we don't need reminding

Not in my Town
For better or worse
it's the one place on earth that keeps pulling me back
In my town
we give second chances we're hopeless romantics like that
And it's not just the memories of those that I've known
or the ghosts of the loves that I've had
this is my town

I've tried to get away
just like everyone does
I've tried to break free of these streets
they must be in my blood

This is my town
For better or worse, it's the one place on earth that keeps pulling me back
In my town
we give second chances, we're hopeless romantics like that

That old beach sign is repainted now
the sun's coming up on our pretty sea town
so come along with me baby lay a blanket down
days are getting longer
days are getting longer
in my town
