Winding back the ccMixter memory clock with Dysfunction_AL to around 1999 :)

Pella uploaded; wet preview, very wet preview with the up front lead and chasing swoosh delay of the era and a dry flac for remixing :)

“Streets of my Hometown”

Looking back
Remembering when we used to laugh
at things we found absurd
photograph
rewinds me back to when we used to take the world for all it had

When we made our story
fighting our way to glory
back on the streets of our home town
nothing we found was boring
up till 5 in the morning
discovering life is what we found

Theres a girl
(we all)
remember years ago
we thought she had it all
Seventeen -
half way between a child and beauty queen
before she hit that wall

She walks the down the streets she walked before
never come back to here she swore
back in the streets of her hometown
The factories closed down years before
silence is all there is to know
back in the streets of her home town

Theres a boy
he stands alone
his world was up and torn
then blown away
Fathers gun
is not the answer
(when that shit goes wrong)
please run away !

Drove by the house where he did grow
windows are boarded overgrown
back in the streets of my hometown
I knocked on his old mans corner door
found out he died there years before
out on the streets of his home town

Its where we made our story
fighting our way to glory
back on the streets of our home town
Looking back
I wonder why
why anyone stayed to watch it die?
back in the streets of my hometown

back on the streets of my hometown

back on the streets
I’m back on the streets of my hometown

Rock!

Scomber and Dysfunction_AL treat us to a straight ahead, toe tapping, head bobbing rock song. Always a pleasure when the ccMixter “house is a rockin’, don’t bother knockin, come on in”

Scomber is racking up on the frequent songwriter miles in the ccMixter spotlight. Congratulations to Scomber!
