Darkness On The Edge Of Town


Theyíre still racing out at the Trestles,
But that blood it never burned in her veins,
Now I hear sheís got a house up in Fairview,
And a style sheís trying to maintain
Well, if she wants to see me,
You can tell her that Iím easily found,
Tell her thereís a spot out íneath Abramís Bridge,
And tell her, thereís a darkness on the edge of town

Everybodyís got a secret, Sonny,
Something that they just canít face,
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it,
They carry it with them every step that they take
Till some day they just cut it loose
Cut it loose or let it drag íem down,
Where no one asks any questions, or looks too long in your face,
In the darkness on the edge of town

Some folks are born into a good life,
Other folks get it anyway, anyhow,
I lost my money and I lost my wife,
Them things donít seem to matter much to me now
Tonight Iíll be on that hill ícause I canít stop,
Iíll be on that hill with everything I got,
Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost,
Iíll be there on time and Iíll pay the cost,
For wanting things that can only be found
In the darkness on the edge of town
