Parting Gift

Parting Gift

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
walking through the old town
past the stray cats
and the boarded up bars
it feels like a ghost town
nothing's really changed
except who we are

Pre Chorus
did I even know you?
did you really know me?

Chorus
Oh time hasn't been too kind
the hands are pointing at you
and I can tell that you mind
but that's just my point of view
you haven't moved on
did the battery stop?
everybody knows a parting gift
is a watch

Verse 2
starting up the engine
but the choke seems to have broke
in my old car
maybe it's a sign
that nothings really changed
except who are

Pre Chorus
did I even know you?
did you really know me?

Chorus
Oh time hasn't been too kind
the hands are pointing at you
and I can tell that you mind
but that's just my point of view
you haven't moved on
did the battery stop?
everybody knows a parting gift
is a watch

Bridge
so much water under my bridge
yours is dry as a bone
leave me alone now, I'm married with kids
I found myself a new home

Chorus
Oh time hasn't been too kind
the hands are pointing at you
and I can tell that you mind
but that's just my point of view
you haven't moved on
did the battery stop?
everybody knows a parting gift
is a watch
