Smallville

VERSE ONE

We’d take our dates to the drive-in show
Park in the back where we could be alone
Little did we know
Time marches on

VERSE TWO

Drive downtown and meet our friends
Go to a place where the dirt began
And watch a fire burn low
Sang our favorite songs

PRE-CHORUS

But this is now and that was then
It’s too bad we can’t go back again

CHORUS

In small towns across this land
Weeds stand where a memory ends
Someone’s name’s on the water tower
An old church clock still chimes the hour
When all we know is the way it feels
And how those times seem so real
From way back when…where life began
When we were livin’ in Smallville

VERSE THREE

I can still remember ridin’ around
All the dreams we had of leaving town
And how when the sun set down
We were nowhere bound

VERSE FOUR

It wasn’t too long before we knew
We’d put that town in our rear views
We thought we were so cool
Just a bunch of fools

PRE-CHORUS

But this is now and that was then
It’s too bad we can’t go back again

CHORUS

In small towns across this land
Weeds stand where a memory ends
Someone’s name’s on the water tower
An old church clock still chimes the hour
When all we know is the way it feels
And how those times seem so real
From way back when…where life began
When we were livin’ in Smallville

BRIDGE

I drove back home not so long ago
Found the drive-in closed
And the parking lot overgrown

CHORUS

In small towns across this land
Weeds stand where a memory ends
Someone’s name’s on the water tower
An old church clock still chimes the hour
When all we know is the way it feels
And how those times seem so real
From way back when…where life began
When we were livin’ in Smallville
