lyrics

dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
we smiled in the sunlight
Some of us learned to tumble right
before the time came to fall

Dad said no talking to strangers
Make friends with the boys on the block
this ain't no punkrock
But on day one I couldn't recognize
my house from the schoolbus window
wound up crying at a phonebooth
cross town

I want to go home
Things don't happen in slow motion
just because you're far away
Hold your friends in your heart
locked under seven keys
so said the song I heard in America

Dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
They smiled in the sunlight
at the end of each other's tunnel they were the light
And they dared kiss hope on the lips

I want to go home
I'll sing for you when you're gone
and you can have me in the song
why do i end up with these blues
every time I fall
Is this the love i had to lose
or must I lose them all
so said the song I heard in america

I want to go home
Things don't happen in slow motion
just because they're far away
Hold your friends in your heart
locked under seven keys
Just get me out of the weeds, please!
so said the song
so said the song I heard
I heard in america

dancing in the front yard
patterns in cement and skylights
1979 before the peso flew south
we smiled in the sunlight
some of us learned to travel light
before the time came to fall
before the time came to fall
before the time came to fall
