lyrics

Sounds of a Town

Strange sounds
Familiar songs
Invite me home
Sounds of a town
afloat on the breeze
sounds of a town
clashing in two
different keys

Clock strikes the hour
trains roar down the line
children are playing their games
road workers dig
mother pleads with her son
board meeting counts out the gain

Sounds of our town
afloat on the breeze
fragments of noise
in the air
Woven aloud are the
sounds of our town
clashing in two
different keys

Coin hits the ground
busker sings out his tune
man in a suit hums along
streets echo shouts
from the chant of a crowd
asking which side are you on

Sounds of our town
afloat on the breeze
fragments of noise
in the air
Woven aloud are the
sounds of our town
clashing in two
different keys
