"Tourist Trap" as written by and Matthew Prescott Clark Adam Kent Russell....
I had a dream that we left here
To get on to the bus upstate
Spent all the money soon as we left
Slept in an old matinee

Stayed in a town where they knew us
And laid on the grass in the square
Got ourselves lost in the country one day
Nobody knew we were there

Burnt cigarettes in the air
We watched them fall
And we let ourselves get carried away
That was the end of a long holiday

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

I had a dream that we went back home
Nobody knew we were gone
Ran off again when they all went to bed
Left a ??? on the lawn

World went by outside the window
You rested your head in my lap
I saw a lighthouse across the great lake
Read in an old paperback

Ain't it a treat, tourist trap
It's not the same
And we let ourselves get carried away
That was the end of a long holiday

I woke up miles away
And I'd send them a postcard
But all of our friends came along for the ride
Slept by the sea and went ????

Ohh

    General CommentYea it definitely sounds like "Left it to burn on the lawn" and the 2nd missing lyric is definitely "Slept by the sea and went out with the tide"

    General CommentMissing lyrics: "Their lanterns still burned on the lawn", "slept by the sea and went out with the tide", and I believe that "burnt cigarettes in the air" should be "birds circle us in the air". Could be wrong, love this song though!
