"Snowbirds And Townies" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba, Chad J. Neptune, Steve Kleiseth, Nicolau Bonifacio Dominguez and Joshua E. Colbert....
Fountains and fluorescent lights.
When season has come
The snowbirds have crowded the nights.
And old townies are tired
Of the beaches and bars
Being packed so tight.
And bridges, and traffic, and inlets,
Are locked in their fight.

And on these boats,
Ride the hopes of working class boys,
Dreaming of girls, from far away points.
And better things. Like winter flings.
And longing after spring has sprung.
And they fly north when winter's done.
And we get burned in summer's sun.

Fountains and fluorescent lights.
When season has come
The snowbirds have crowded the nights.
And young townies and tourists
Find unlikely love at first sight.
And swear that they're never leaving
And that is their plight.

This winter is lasting forever,
At least for tonight.
And I know that you're never leaving,
Until your flight,
Takes you off,
And out of my arms,
And into the air,
So far from your charms,
That I can not bare,
Another year,
In this long forgotten beach town,
We once shared.

This winter is lasting forever,
At least for tonight.
And I know that you're never
Leaving me again.
No, not again.

    General Commenti thought this was about the songs meaning, not bad opinions of worse building acoustics.

    General Commenti don't really think there's anyone who can't relate to this song... the thing I love about fsf is that they come right out and say what they mean but they find the most beautiful words to use~ ok and you people need to chill!!!
