Elephant And Castle

This song is by Houston Calls and appears on the album A Collection Of Short Stories (2005).

Rachel left home last night
the city sleeps through train lights
stars in the sky are all that keep her alive
she packed up and ditched the town that saw all her ups and downs
she severed all ties to start all over again

calling all tickets
the train leaves in minutes
sits near the window
she turns her back on
the city she once called home
the yard where she ran through snow
the streets driven up and down and through and through
the lot where she'd stare at stars
the porch nights she'd count the cars
they're all memories of simpler times now gone

thinking back to the first time
her mom said, "I'll let you move on if you want to,
remember I love you."

"Please just go little girl," the city calls her
this is your chance, this is your freedom
"Please don't go little girl." her father says to her
it won't work out, it won't be easy

holding back tears of joy she steps out into the world
the city lights look just the way they did on tv

she flails her arms
she runs both up and down the sidewalks
thinking back to the times when she spent it all dreaming
now she's found what she wanted, found what she's needed


please let go little girls of everything you know
you start it now, you've started over
