"Old Town New" as written by Darrell Scott and Bruce Robison....
On a lover's leap with a freeway view
Sittin' on my hood
Thinkin' bout you
Going over in my mind
Every kiss and every fight
Yeah the fool on the hill
Is leading down another night

There were days so hard
I thought I had to go
I'd get in my car
And just follow the road
But this is my home
And it's who I am
And I know I'd stay
If I could make this old town new again

Color other than blue again
I'd have something to do again
Instead of thinking about you again
But the people I know
The places I go
Remind me of you
Oh, won't somebody come around
And make this old town new

There were nights so long
I thought the sun burned out
And there were girls so wrong
I don't want to talk about
I was burning up the night
Yeah, in an alcohol flame
Lightin' up my way
Trying to make this old town new again

Color other than blue again
I'd have something to do again
Instead of thinkin' about you again
But the people I know
The places I go
Remind me of you
Won't somebody come around
And make this old town new

But the people I know and
The places I go
Remind me of you

Love goes wrong but life goes on
And I know what I gotta do
I'm just hangin' around
Tryin' to make this old town new

    General CommentBeing stuck in a town with memories of a love lost. Its filled with memories of the one you want back, and it makes things tough day and night. Everything you do and everyone you know just remind you of her. You want to leave but after all its your home. good song.
