Left Unsung

[Verse 1]
Might have been ’86, both of us kids near the city
Midwest, flatlands, suburbia felt like such a pity
I was jazz band, you were theater class
How were we to know it would end in such a mess?

[Verse 2]
Champaign, Monkey House, radio, music, and the rain
Home-brewin’, growin’ in the closet but we didn’t see the pain
Saw you find that mandolin
Now we all hear that were never gonna see it again

[Chorus]
No new songs to sing
Or highways left to ride
No more good times with your friends
'Cause you’re on the other side
No new mеlodies
Or trips around the sun
But we’ll all bе here
To write the songs you left unsung

[Verse 3]
East coast, West coast, mountaintops brought you to the middle
Making up a life and a sound, you were dancing to the fiddle
Of a Hartford tune on a sunny day
Your time in the light before it all went grey

[Chorus]
No new songs to sing
Or highways left to ride
No more good times with your friends
'Cause you’re on the other side
No new melodies
Or trips around the sun
But we’ll all be here
To write the songs you left unsung

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
No new songs to sing
Or highways left to ride
No more good times with your friends
'Cause you’re on the other side
No new melodies
Or trips around the sun
But we’ll all be here
To write the songs you left unsung

[Outro]
Yeah we’ll all be here to write the songs you left unsung
Yeah we’ll all be here to write the songs you left unsung
(Songs you left unsung, songs you left unsung)
(Songs you left unsung, songs you left unsung)
Yeah we’ll all be here to write the songs you left unsung
All be here to write the songs you left unsung
All be here to write the songs you left unsung
