lyrics

"The Graveyard of The Atlantic" Lyrics and Music - Kristopher Roe

The Chesapeake below these fumbled hands and nervous smiles.
We medicate and stumble to find the courage to talk aloud.
In the streetlight silhouette these neon halos shines so bright.
While the radio cried "Young Hearts be Free Tonight!"

So tell me how'd we end here?
We all want to feel something even if it’s only for a moment.
Tell me what happened to our dreams we had when we were young?
We’re never looking back.

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.
Tonight, these jukebox 45s
Are calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.

Well, I am just a bit part in this movie of your life
While the night brigade roll on out on highway 95.
We’re carving out our lives on these counterfeit guitars,
While the ghosts of our past ring down the boulevard.

So tell me, how'd we end here?
We all want to feel something, If it’s only for a moment.
Tell me, what happened to our dreams we had when we were young?
We’re never looking back now.

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.
Tonight, sad songs and whiskey nights
Are calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.

We grew up chasing sunsets, now we both just shut our eyes.
We were young and oh so bold, and torn apart by county lines

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.
Tonight, from the basements and the dives
We’re calling out don’t surrender, don’t surrender.
