Starlight Town

from by Goldenboy



Maura was the dark star
Black sheep of the family
She never said much but I guess it was as much focused on the chemistry
Vincent was the best of
All his mother’s sons
Apple of the eye drove a tractor at age five
But lately he’s so bored

Their eyes met as the sun went down
On Starlight Town

Spending their days together
While planning their getaway
Vincent said, “Hey, we should run away”
“You know I’ll go wherever you are”

Putting their stuff together
Stealing their neighbor’s car
Left it by the riverbank with no gas inside the tank
They left some money in the door

And when the check and bill came ‘round
They charged it all
To Starlight Town

Meanwhile back at Starlight
There was a bank robbery
Vincent was named
Subsequently he was blamed
A mistaken identity
Vincent pleads his innocence
Through the basement walls
Even though he was surrounded
Only one shot sounded
She said, “He never carried a gun.”
Maura took the next greyhound bound
To Starlight Town
Run to Starlight
Run to Starlight
Run to Starlight Town
