Patty Griffin – Boston lyrics

I went back to boston
Back to the city of lost love
I went back to the place
And recognized your face in the stone long gone

I walked around harvard square
All the runaway kids are still hanging out there
I took the red line a wrong way
Across the river charles

Something's changed track
And they never fly
And they never fly
Reach up from the waves
You'll find that you're only waving goodbye

I went walking in boston
A little bridge I used to walk on
I was slipping on a hog
And I flung into that sea of strong
Processing need not apply
For you to license to fly
Hey young lady don't be so suprised
You know you're not alone

Something's changed track
And they never fly
And they never fly
Reach up from the waves
You'll find that you're only waving goodbye

It was memorial day
I went to where you lay
There were thousands of people
Just like you in a chain graveyard

You came out of there awake
Looking for the sky
And got a slap in the face
Well hey
Desperate needs a big led
And gets put in the place
You better know your place boy

Something's changed track
And they never fly
And they never fly
Reach up from the waves
You'll find that you're only waving goodbye

Only waving
You're only waving
You're only waving
You're only waving goodbye
Goodbye
