lyrics

The sun goes down on your hometown -
isn't it funny how the day seems so long?
Oh so long...
On the street where you grew up wrong
there's always someone to miss you when you're gone
(and you're always gone).

Your mother stands proud and your father stands tall -
they don't know you, they don't know you at all.

The sun goes down on your hometown -
isn't it funny how the day seems so long?
Oh so long...
But - at last! - the last of the last day -
isn't it funny now you wish you could stay?
You wish you could stay.

Your sister stands proud and your brother stands tall -
they don't know you, they don't know you at all.

On the street where you grew up wrong
they built the memories and built them strong
but when the morning comes
you know that you'll be far away.
