the radio’s a way of leaving town

the radio’s a way of leaving town

a way of scaling the silos looking down

at the river it’s alight we’re getting through

these days when all they do is just drag on

it’s the sound of it that gets to me

the sting of it on my skin

glittering the river sings

the song it’s sung since we begun

i left you to make sense of things

but it turns out they make no sense of me

or the words i see inside the sky

the words i’ve sung since i begun

i see the shape of this old town

i see the leaves all on the ground

they grow those plants they just don’t stop

the sun it just stings on

you remember me, you know me

i’ve come here all these years

you’ve forgot now, now you see me

all the years that i’ve left here

and even when i’m leaving

i’ll be on my way to you

you’ll know i’m on my way to you

i’m always, on my way to you
