Lyrics

Small Town Little Folks' Daughter

Written By: Ebbe Weile

In a constant celebration
Of absolutely nothing
With no beginning, no substance and no end

In an endless exhibition
Of mindless people watching
Shallowness as if it were heaven sent

I want a small town little folks' daughter
To keep my head above the water
A small town little folks' daughter
Will be good to me

Big city lights are shining
Well, people think they're stars
And almost everything that shines is gold

Some come out from their hiding
Disguising new-found scars
Pretending they don't do just what they're told

I want a small town little folks' daughter
To keep my head above the water
There just ain't nobody better
And I know that some day I'll get her
My small town little folks' daughter
Will be good to me

There's something real waiting away from here
And I can feel it calling from over there
I'm sick and tired of wasting life away
I'm petrified by the thought of another day
Here...

They're smiling while they're blowing
You a kiss to make you drown
Before their Cadillac gondolas take them home

I want a small town little folks' daughter
To keep my head above the water
My small town little folks' daughter
Will be good to me

The Radio On and The Windows Down

Written By: Ebbe Weile

I want a rich man's money and a poor man's heart
I want to stay who I am and make a brand new start
Wanna do what I do, maybe fly to the moon
Just travel forever and be back home soon

I want to question the people who tell me I'm wrong
Just want to sit here and listen to my favorite song
When the music is over and things are the same
I'll wonder if you'll still remember my name

And I'm gonna be driving out of town
With the radio on and the windows down
Drive all day 'till I can't drive no more
Down to a place I've never been before

I want a rich man's money and a poor man's heart
I want to lose the script and still play my part
Wanna be happy-sad when I'm leaving this joint
'Cause a clown who can't laugh
Has missed half of the point

And I wanna be driving out of town
With the radio on and the windows down
Drive all day 'till I can't drive no more
Down to a place I've never been before

Everybody want to stay forever or until they die
Sometimes they wanna leave
And there's a million reasons why
Me, I just wanna stay and go somewhere...

And you'll see me driving out of town
With the radio on and the windows down
Drive all day 'till I can't drive no more
Down to a place I've never been before
