about

A delightful song about loneliness, geared towards people who like a touch of pathos in their songs!

Title (and nothing else) from Motern Media's "Never Cross That Line" by The Guy Who Sings Songs About Cities & Towns, a bonus track off of the album "I've Never Left My Hometown."

lyrics

Never Cross That Line

VERSE 1

If you look on a map
You'll see encircling my town
A solid black line
I wish I could see on the ground

So I'd know just how far
I can walk before I’m in
Someone else's town
Somewhere I’ve never been

CHORUS
I'll never cross that line
I'll never leave my home
This town's been good to me
I've got no urge to roam

VERSE 2

They say your home 
is wherever is your heart
I know that that's a lie
I knew it from the start

My beloved wanted to leave town
To further her career
She followed her dreams
My home is still here

CHORUS x2

I'll never cross that line
I'll never leave my home
This town's been good to me
I've got no need to roam

BRIDGE

She didn’t ask me to go
She knew what I hold dear
She left with my heart
My home will always be here

CHORUS

I'll never cross that line
I'll never leave my home
This town's been good to me
I've got no urge to roam
