Patty Griffin - Boston lyrics

Boston by Patty Griffin


I went back to Boston
Back to the city you're lost in
I went back to the place without you, facing the stone
Walked around Harvard Square
The runaway kids are still hanging out there
And I took the red line all the way
Across the River Charles
Some things try and try
And they never fly
And they never fly
You reach up from the waves
And find that you're only waving goodbye
Went walking in Boston
Over a bridge I used to walk on
I was looking for my heart
That I'd flung into that sea of stone, stone
Boston said you need not apply
For your license to fly
Hey young lady don't be so surprised
You know you're not alone
Some things try and try
And they never fly
And they never fly
You reach up from the waves
And find that you're only waving goodbye
It was Memorial Day
I went to where you lay
There were thousands of people
Just like you in a giant graveyard
You came all that way
Looking for the sky
And got a slap in the face
You had a desperate need to be loved
You just got put in that place
You better know your place, boy
Some things try and try
And they never fly
And they never fly
You reach up from the waves
And find that you're only waving goodbye
Only waving
You're only waving
You're only waving
You're only waving goodbye
Goodbye
