RED BALL RISING

Music and Lyrics by Nat Hamilton. Copyright 2011.

Oh, October
Only say the word
and I would run to you
I'd drive all night

Thieves and guns
and wayward sailors come
I've given all I could
But you're still gone.

I searched these city streets
street lamps comfort me
then fade to white
I've been here before
I built these city walls
I keep on driving

With that Red Ball Rising

August calls
My walls are coming down
My eyes are falling now
I chase this night

Gods in crowds
March's holy lords
I thought I'd pick a part
but I keep on driving

I searched these city streets
where street lamps come for me
then fade to white
I've been here before
I built these city walls
I keep on driving

I looked for yesterday
Can't find my yesterday
I keep on
I keep on

And I...
You know I've looked for you
I preyed that Harvest Moon
I keep on driving

With that Red Ball Rising
With that Red Ball Rising
