lyrics

There's a rusty nail
In an old dirt lot
Where the barefeet boys
run in circles,
running down and out
of time.

With a wink of an eye,
as the sun went down,
mama sang to me
with her hand so gently
pouring hot water
over tea.

I hold my hand
From way back then
Form growing cold.

It's a song
stuck in my head
It's a long, song
at the wrong time.

It's a long way back
it's the fool in me
Looking down the street
for a glimpse of what
used to be
through eyes that
used to see.

If the wind don't blow,
then my eyes won't dry.
And my head won't know
what my heart knows,
when I,
cry while others
smile and sleep.

I hold my hand
From way back then
Form growing cold.

It's a song
stuck in my head
It's a long, song
at the wrong time.
