Snowbirds and Townies

by Further Seems Forever


Fountains and flourescent lights
When season has come
the snowbirds have crowded the nights
And old townies are tired
of the beaches and bars
being packed so tight
And bridges, and traffic, and inlets,
are locked in their fight

And on these boats,
ride the hopes of working class boys,
dreaming of girls, from far away points
And better things. Like winter flings
And longing after spring has sprung
And they fly north when winter's done
And we get burned in summer's sun

Fountains and fluorescent lights
When season has come
the snowbirds have crowded the nights
And young townies and tourists
find unlikely love at first sight
And swear that they're never leaving
and that is their plight

This winter is lasting forever,
at least for tonight
And I know that you're never leaving,
until your flight,
takes you off,
and out of my arms,
and into the air,
so far from your charms,
that I can not bare,
another year,
in this long forgotten beach town,
we once shared

This winter is lasting forever,
at least for tonight
And I know that you're never
leaving me again
No, not again
