Not In This Town

This song is by Captain Tractor and appears on the album Land (1994).

You said goodbye to the old crowd
Packed your life on a greyhound
Wound up in this town
And there's something about the feel
Of your last twenty dollar bill
That lets you know you'll be here for a while

You're holding on
To a dream that you doubt and you're holding fast
You're letting go
Of a doubt that might remind you that you might not last
Are you gonna last?

'Cause at home no one ever put you down
Not in this town
And at home you were feeling so unclear
How do you feel here?

'Cause you're looking so confused
And feeling so bizarre
They don't know what to say
They don't know who you are in this town
No, not in this town
Not in this town
No, not in this town

She lights up union square
Pushing through the turnstile
This is her town
And there's something about the way
She climbs the subway stairs
That lets you know she's been here for a while

You watch her go
As she catches your eye you think she might be the one
She might be good
Give you everything you needed to turn you around

And she might pick you up from off the ground
Feeling lost in this town
And she stops and you feel you're not alone
Come here and lead me home

But you're feeling so confused
And looking so bizarre
She don't know what to say
She don't know who you are in this town
No, not in this town
Not in this town
No, not in this town

'Cause at home no one ever put you down
Not in this town
But at home you were feeling so unclear
How do you feel here?

Those hopes have turned to fears
You wonder where you are
Without a little light
You know you won't go far in this town
No, not in this town
Not in this town
No, not in this town

Not in this town
No, not in this town
Not in this town
No, not in this town
Not in this town
Not in this town
