David Crosby РSomebody Else̢??s Town lyrics

Somebody Else's Town (5: 15)
Words: David Crosby and Jeff Pevar
Music: James Raymond

Blood is thicker than water
Friendship's stronger than fear
Love is God's favorite daughter
It's perfectly clear
I can see it tonight
In the comet's faint light
As my heels hit pavement
Wet from the light
Rain that's coming whispering down
On somebody else's town

A broken down diner
With three people in it
Pulls my attention
For half a minute
I think about tryin' to talk
To explain why I'm takin' this walk

Why a simple motel room
Can be some kind of hell room
It's making me get up and stalk this way
Cause I don't want to say that
I'm down in somebody else's town

I am stronger than this
I have been here before
I am no freakin' kid
In his first taste of war
With the loneliness drifting
Around here in
Somebody else's town

Music spills out into the street
Must be someone in there I could meet
But I think I will telephone home
Hear that soft sleepy voice on the phone
Keep them awake by the
Sound of my talking
Tell the truths I found out
Walkin' in
Somebody else's town
