J. spinks

The raintown boys are leaving today
Heading on out to the shoreline
The greytown boys are tired of this place
They're not coming back anymore

They're gonna find a new life in the city
Don't wanna live in black and white
'cos nothing's gonna change the talkin's over
Too many wasted years gone by

The raintown boys ain't coming back to town no more
They've had enough of living in the past for sure

The sadtown girls are crying inside
Thoughts are out there in the darkness
They'd given their hearts to the boys in the past
Now it's so lonely without them

It's late at night but downtown in the city
They walk the streets - the lights turn red
A broken voice in their imagination
They can't believe the things she said

I can give you more than anyone can
Perfect strangers living in a new land

The raintown boys are so far away
Been living it up on the shore
No doubt in their minds they're gonna stay
There's nothing left to go home for

They've found a better life inside this city
Their fears are gone - their fortunes changed
Just like they were made for one another
The boy's won't ever be the same

The raintown boys ain't coming back to town no more
They've had enough of living in the past for sure

No more - no more - no more
No more - no more - no more
