about

This song is the fourth single from the docu-pop podcast series The Band That Never Was, a memoir of a failed band packed with humor, stories, and lessons learned. The tune was composed by three of the former bandmates over a 15-year period, and features Aimee Lovett of the band Loretti on guest vocals.

lyrics

(copyright 2009 Jeff Simms, Michael Montgomery & the matthew show)

Here in this little town again
Old house looks the same
Seems nothing has changed at all
Except our reasons for being here

CHORUS:
Keep your head toward the sun
Don't turn away
And if you do, you may find
You'll get your way
'Cause yesterday
Don't mean that much for today
And a light will guide our way
And a light will guide our way

Here in this little town again
No audits of fame
Same face in the sandwich shop
Same face in the workshop windowpane

In '94, it was all so hard
We pushed on the walls till they all fell apart
And now it's all these years in the open air
And I'm looking for their traces

(CHORUS)
