lyrics

Knoxville, Tennessee, I left you in a dream
But in my mind I say it was you who left me
Knoxville, Tennessee, say goodbye to spring
and summer with its reckless heart

I take it hard. I take my time.
I found a reason to pray.
I take it hard, the silent yard
Where are the birds of summer?

It's how to answer why
Drive to a little town to die. It takes some courage
to stay awake all night
As constellations walk across the sky
And down the mountain

I take it hard. I take my time.
I found a reason to pray.
I take it hard, the silent yard
Where are the birds of summer?

Knoxville, Tennessee, there's so many ways to call you mine
I'll check in for one night
Knoxville, Tennessee, I'm so lonely
It's the saddest love song.

I take it hard. I take my time.
I found a reason to pray.
I take it hard, the silent yard
Where are the birds of summer?
