Streets cry alone, in the land of Adelene
Populace few, but the smiles multiply two
All rise at the sundown
Torches light this dim town
And every once of bitter earth never slips the mind

They'll set you down
Don't lose your ground
In this tragic fairy tale

So the story goes
Not sure how it's told
You said:"If I live another year in this dusty ridden place"
"I will swim out to sea and make you all believe,
that I dont belong in the suburbs"
"Its been so long since the sun burned"

"Don't let me down and don't ever lie"
"Cuz I've lived here all this time,
and my whole life has been a useless whine"
"When all I ever wanted was a way out"
"This boredom knows me well"
"I'm sure you'll never tell"

Then that day, you were running
Mom and Dad had upset you
Better now than never
After all they will leave you

We'll leave you in the town of Adelene

    General Commentthe end of this song is about my friend Dan, the lead singers brother...
    -Then that day, you were running
    -Mom and Dad had upset you
    -Better now than never
    -After all they will leave you...

    One day, Dan tried to run away, and the lead singer Andy had to go and get him down the street. I love it everytime Dan tells me that story...:-)
