​Last Clock On The Wall

This song is by Joe Purdy and appears on the album Last Clock On The Wall (2009).

Well a train leaves the station
And there's blood on the tracks
And I threw my record player
Yeah to london bridge and back

And I saw you on the stage
Singing songs we used to play
And I know he's grown his hair out
But he still don't look like me

Yeah but I know that you were listening
'Cause I heard it in your song
Said I may be moving, baby,
But I ain't moving on

And I could sing you a lullaby
That I made up in the dark
But you know what I think
I would rather sing yours
Yeah 'cause honey they don't make 'em
With their voices still shaking anymore

And the whistling of the boxcars
Threw me out into the wind
And it was cold in san francisco
And I was thinking back to when

Yeah when you dropped me down by the water
And you danced on the golden gate
And I was thinking about a love we had
Yes and a love that we used to make

And I saw you up in washington
With your new boy at the gig
Said I may be settling baby
But I'm settling big

And you told me you couldn't wait on me
Any longer to decide
Well that may be true
But its no excuse for you to lie

This ain't no room with a view
Its just a fancy place for you to run and hide

And the last clock on the wall
Well she's starting to fall
Yeah but no one seems to mind it at all

Well I threw my glass out on main street
Started a fire in central park
Yes but the crowd that I was hoping for
They just vanished in the dark

So I walked around the corner
Yeah with the crazies on the street
And I saw a girl who looked just like you
She had no shoes upon her feet

And she told me that she heard from angels
And they told her what to do
I said they may be talking, baby
But they ain't talking to you

And they told her that she could fly
If she jumped off a building that was high
You know what, that may be the last thing that she said
Still I wish that you wouldn't listen
To every voice that creeps inside your head

And the last clock on the wall
Well she's starting to fall
Yeah but no one seems to mind it at all
And the last clock on the wall
Well she's starting to fall
Yeah but no one seems to care at all
