Hey Man, Nice Town

nice town

If I had me a bike I’d be riding like Bronson
Cant never stay in one place for too long
Don’t need no anchor the road is my mistress
She sings to me so I answer her song

Always in motion nomadic and constant
There’s so much of the world left to see
If you want to get out from under the weight
Pack what you can say good bye just like me

Travel’s my code
My life of the road
Kerouac would never slow down
Hop on a freight
Where am I this date
Its like whatever man, nice town

Stepped off the bus not even sure where I am
Just gotta pray the town you’re in has some heart
There are so many cities I get so confused
After awhile you can’t even tell ‘em apart

Neon flashed out more than a chance invitation
Cup of hot coffee to warm lonely bones
Waitress served me a wink with a side of compassion
Plain to see we both suffer a sex Jones

Together we found comfort
In a bedroom of solace
Thought she would never slow down
She asked me to stay
But at the end of the day
I’m like whatever man, nice town

Two lonely lovers in one lonely town
With her stuck in chains I was soaring with wings
Two lonely lovers both searching the stars
Meeting in this town was just one of those things

Where are you going where are you from
What brings us together on this night
You need the comfort of being at home
I need the endless road found in flight

I’ll never stay
I’ll just run away
Never in one place am I found
There’s room for one more
Just walk out the door
Say like whatever man, nice town

The tray that you carry keeps you in prison
Your husband nailing your dress to the shack
Only you can make your pathway to freedom
Escape the prison of love on your back

This time tomorrow I’ll be back on the bus
Heading straight to destination unknown
I’ll have two tickets and a heart full of hope
If you don’t show guess I’ll just travel alone

She felt kinda weak
Couldn’t even speak
Seems like a bug of some kind going roun’
Heart on her sleeve
Just couldn’t leave
Its like whatever man, nice town

If I had me a bike I’d be riding like Bronson
Cant never stay in one place for too long
Don’t need no anchor the road is my mistress
She sings to me so I answer her song
