Gareth Emery – st mary’s Lyrics

st mary’s By Gareth Emery

Headed to St. Mary’s, I cross the avenue
The last time I came here, I’d just turned 22
I should be a hero in this town
But that’s alright, I’m keeping my head down
It all started here, walking on a road like this
Singing at the Joiner’s, bowing down to Matt Le Tiss
Move like a suburban hurricane
Red and white blood running through my veins

Tell the city that I love her, and I miss her ways
Only fools hold on to the glory days
When memories fade and friends move on
I’ll never forget where I come from

All I’ve got are memories, that’s good enough for me
Walking past The Old Dell remember ’93
Rewind on the radio again
T-shirts with 6:3 all over them
Post relegation following the northern lights
Foreign destinations, California in my sights
A thousand airports and I feel the same
Red and white still running through my veins

Tell the city that I love her, and I miss her ways
Only fools hold on to the glory days
When memories fade and friends move on
I’ll never forget where I come from

Walking through the suburbs and the world I left behind
Looking for your headstone, ’06 still on my mind
Don’t think that I felt this way before
Decades passed still knocking at my door
It’s way past the sunset, I’m feeling kinda strange
All kind of drinking, some things they never changed
Nine p.m. and it’s time to board my train
Another year til I’m out here again

Tell the city that I love her, and I miss her ways
Only fools hold on to the glory days
When memories fade and friends move on
I’ll never forget where I come from
