Neighbor

Album: Infinite Arms (2010)
  • The wind blew a path through the fallen leaves
    And there showed a crack in the old oak tree
    The door stood as if it was standing guard
    Of the dozen chipmunks in the backyard

    Every house not a home but dare do I roam
    There's a light on the porch here for someone

    Once upon a time in a border town
    The war was over, the guns laid down
    The women, the men, the children saved
    Now it's hard to remember it any other way

    When the law acts as though there is nothing to show
    There is compassion and depth in a neighbor

    Now if Bartles and James didn't need no first names
    We could live by our own laws in favor

    Every house not a home but dare do I roam
    There's a light on the porch here for someone

    Now if Bartles and James didn't need no first names
    We could live by our own laws in favor Writer/s: BENJAMIN BRIDWELL
