"Boston" lyrics - THE DREAM SYNDICATE


Come back to Boston as soon as you can
The whole thing ain't gone down according to the plan
Morning when I wake up I don't like what I see
And late at night my dreams are terrifying me

Well, I was walking by the river in the early morning dew
Singing out lines from "Cypress Avenue"
I wonder where he stood when it all came down
Come back to Boston before I hit the ground

And the winners stand confused
They don't want to be misused
And the losers that came before
Say "I don't want to be here anymore."

Well, I was standing on the back porch
Looking at the books: poets, politicians, beauty queens and crooks
I wonder where they stood when the inspiration came
Come back to Boston before I jump the train

Come back to Boston or I'll meet you halfway
Somewhere by the middle of the interstate
We can take it on down to some cold, deserted lake
And come back to Boston before we make the same mistake
