"Birmingham" as written by and David Michael/mc Taggart Tyson....
All the efforts spent to fail
Made this place a living hell
Now the best years of our life
Are fading vapor trails

Think tonight I'll just sleep in
Pull the sheets up to my chin
Drop the needle in the groove
And watch the record spin

Your eyes are tired
You're not the boy I knew
Birmingham is slowly killing you

So tell her
I'm the one you left behind
And I'll be here
Just in case you change your mind

Goodbye

Now the cut is overgrown
The old highway carved in snow
And I walk through Holland park
Wondering where the birds flown

Think tonight I'll just sleep in
Pull the sheets up to my chin
Drop the needle in the groove
And watch the record spin

Your eyes are tired
You're not the boy I knew
Birmingham is slowly killing you

So tell her
I'm the one you left behind
And I'll be here
Just in case you change your mind

You're free
And from the wound I'll be
Just someone you use to know

Oh I lived here my whole life
And never had that much to show
So tell her I said hello

Your eyes are tired
You're not the boy I knew
Birmingham is slowly killing you

So tell her
I'm the one you left behind
And I'll be here
Just in case you change your mind

Goodbye

    General CommentI think this song is about Birmingham, AL since that's where the artist is from. So some corrections could be, instead of:

    cut is overgrown- kudzu's overgrown(a plant that grows all over in the south, especially in this area of Alabama en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)
    highway carved in snow- highway carved in stone (the Red Mountain Expressway en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)
    Holland Park- Highland Park (a park of this name in downtown Birmingham maps.google.com/…)

    just thought that was interesting
