"Something About This Town"

SOMETHING ABOUT THIS TOWN Lyrics by Mans Zelmerlow
Back in the fields they painted gold
Where every breath just feels like home
The people may have changed
To me it's still the same
Walking the streets that made this man
Talking the tongue that I once had, so clear
I guess history writes itself here

Forget all the bright lights, the towering skylines
There's something about this town
Where heaven is closer, the weight off my shoulders
There's something about this town

And I can't change what I am made of now
I guess there's something about this town

The faces are lost at Old John Bull's
I guess the sands of time are cruel
Somebody calls my name
Wish I could do the same
Lights of the Grand Hotel's gone dark
But stars seem to shine with a different spark, so clear
I guess history writes itself here

Forget all the bright lights, the towering skylines
There's something about this town
Where heaven is closer, the weight off my shoulders
There's something about this town

Some people say that I have made it now
I guess there's something about this town
(There's something about this town)
I dream of colors that are evergreen
Oh... whenever I'm southbound
So please forgive sentimentality
Oh... there's something about this town

So forget all the bright lights, the towering skylines
There's something about this town
Where heaven is closer, the weight off my shoulders
There's something about this town

And I can't change what I am made of now
I guess there's something about this town
