"Main Street" as written by Finn Bjarnson, Finn Bjarnson, John Hancock, John Hancock, Ryan Raddon, Becky Jean Williams and Becky Jean Williams....
Self-assured with a cold heart.
I was sure the words had failed us.
So roundabout,
I take the curtains down,
sweep beneath chairs,
the un-answered prayers.
Now I'm haunted by a longing
so early in the morning.
It greets me without warning.

I see you today,
we small talk but time gets in the way,
so I clip the clock's wings,
we talk about smart things.
Find myself smiling
for the first time in days.

Now I'm haunted by a longing,
this afternoon on main street.

You're smiling and oh, how apropos.
I once had an ending
but now I have the go.
I laugh when you say "flowers say what they mean",
cause roundabout, you say the funniest things.

Now I'm haunted by a longing so late in the evening.
It greets me with a warning.

    General CommentThis song is just perfect! For me is about the end of a relationship, when you decided to take a break from Love and abandon hope... but then, you find that same person that you swear never love again... and all of a sudden you find yourself feeling this old spark that once makes you feel so in love. I'm not even in a relationship since forever, but every time I listen to this song it's like falling in love again. I love the voice of Becky Jean Williams, she's just perfect! Long live this group!
