lyrics

Well my grandpa still remembers
When that pole went in the ground.
That was the day they strung together
Everything in town.
And all these obsolete wires you still see
Just hanging in the air,
They were the mayor's rosary necklace,
And every factory was a prayer.

Oh I know everything still has some beauty in it.
Oh I don't know if anybody here can even see it.
Or maybe it just doesn't matter.

Is it odd that I find comfort in
Chipped paint and broken glass?
Crumbling architecture,
Forgotten pieces of the past.
So let the nights get cold. Let the walkways crack.
Let the weeds poke through the ground.
They're only begging for a chance to prove
That they can make it in this town.

Oh I know everything still has some beauty in it.
Oh I don't know if anybody here can even see it.
Or maybe it just doesn't matter.

I won't forget about you when I'm gone
And I've put every little bit of myself in these songs
So you can sit in the moonlight and put my records on.

Though I'm thankful for the people
And the places I have known,
This old highway is my Polaris
And it will always guide me home.
So let the nights get cold. Let the walkways crack.
Let the weeds poke through the ground.
You'll find me begging for a chance to prove
That I can make it this town.
