"This Town" as written by and Prosser Cooper....
In the holy bars of Europe
I bowed and said Amen
But when my eyes were open
She had vanished once again
I chased her down the highways
like lights across the sky
I was looking for perfection of a very basic kind

You've got to get higher than you've been before
To knock on heaven's door
She could be anywhere and

This town is her town
Think I know my way around
Through the laughter and the lights

I was close to understanding, I never felt so fine
The angels leave on horseback
but the devils are all mine
I knew I'd live forever, I was flying down the years
Till I heard the sound of morning
breaking glass around my ears

You've get to get higher than you've been before
To knock on heaven's door
Tonight she's everywhere and

This town is her town
Think I know my way around
Through the laughter and the lights
This town is holy ground
Nothing's going to drag me down
This town is our town tonight

Seems I'll never get away
From the bitten nails and the need to pray
The sweet familiar scent of danger
It's the constant pull of the stranger
God protect me from what I want
And these places that she haunts and

This town is her town
Think I know my way around
Through the laughter and the lights
This town is holy ground
Nothing's going to drag me down
This town is our town tonight

Seems I'll never get away
From the bitten nails and the need to pray
The sweet familiar scent of danger
It's the constant pull of the stranger
God protect me from what I want
And these places that she haunts

This town is her town
Think I know my way around
Through the laughter and the lights
This town is holy ground
Nothing's going to drag me down
This town is our town tonight

This town is her town
Think I know my way around
Through the laughter and the fights
This town is holy ground
Nothing's going to drag me down
This town is our town tonight
