Track Name: Darkest Part of Town
The itch
The thirst
The ache
A road that could lead to no good

The twist
The first
To break
An oath you would honor if you could

Anyone could see it coming

The ghost
Your friend
A stranger
Waving their flags in the winds

A toast
To the end
Of an era
Here's where another one begins

Anyone could see it coming
Even I could see it coming

You took your broken heart
Down to the darkest part of this town
It was a glorious night
You had a damn good time on your own

The waves
Of the music
In the crowd
Nailing their souls to the wall

To the pulse
Of the ruin
Of the tower
Of radiant hope that you let fall

Anyone could see it coming
Even I could see it coming

You took your broken heart
Down to the darkest part of this town
(Nobody wants to be alone)
It was a glorious night
You had a damn good time on your own

You showed your broken heart
A decadent new start in this town
(Nobody wants to be alone)
It's been a glorious night
and who knows if we'll ever go home
