Paul Eason – Abilene lyrics

The stars up here don't burn as bright
Nothin seems the same
I wake up to the same old place
It don't ever change

I can see those night we used to watch
The fireflies dancin round
If I close my eyes in no time at all
I'm back in that old town

In my heart I'm in Abilene
Where life don't treat you quite so mean
It's you and me on a front porch swing
Watchin the sun go down
Can't you feel the summer breeze
Blowin through the grass so green
Though I'm sittin here in Tennessee
In my heart I'm in Abilene

Lately when I talk to you
I can't remember why I'm gone
But it don't matter anyhow
I barely notice I'm not home
