Pershing Drive

from by The Roof Beam Carpenters

lyrics

rolling the window down i sigh
i'm exiting interstate five
balboa, north park, normal heights, are crowding around me
the city’s alive

every time i see the sign that leads to pershing drive
it is whispering to me
and every time i wander down to hamilton's at night
oh it is whispering to me now
'stay awhile'

a lover a neighborhood combine over time
the boundaries bleed
and echoes of happiness and loss
anthropomorphize the buildings and streets

every time i see the sign that leads to pershing drive
it is whispering to me
and every time i wander down to hamilton's at night
oh it is whispering to me now

but sometimes it shouts so loud
when i'm wide awake on a fold out couch
