Creek

lyrics

Oh take me
back towards the river's stream
our hair was in our eyes
and our jeans torn at the knees

Those nights were filled with stars
anticipating something much too far away
it came and went
even after all we'd spent

Now too long, it has been
too long since life seemed bleak
there's no one now
there's no one at the Creek

Our lives are funny things
nostalgic little fragments looped around our everything
no I won't give in
except for maybe when I drink

I remember feeling strong
I remember telling secrets on the backyard lawn
and we prayed to not grow up
but it was to a god in which we didn't believe

There's no one now
swimming to the dock or reading books out loud
we've all got our homes
we've all grown up proud

So don't blame me
blame it on the winters or the summer breeze
you can forget but not me
that there's no one at
no one at the Creek
