I've got no need for open roads
'Cause all I own fits on my back
I see the world from rusted trains
And always know I won't be back

'Cause all my life is wrapped up in today
No past or future here
If I find my name's no good
I just fall out of line

But I miss you
But there's comin' home
There's no comin' home
With a name like mine
I still think of you
But everyone knows
Yeah everyone knows
If you can, let it go

I seen more places than I can name
And over time they all start to look the same
But it ain't that truth we chase
No, it's the promise of a better place

But all this time, I been chasin' down a lie
And I know it for what it is
But it beats the alternatives
So I'll take the lie

I still miss you
There's no goin' home
There's no goin' home
With a name like mine
I still dream of you
But everyone knows
Yeah everyone knows
If you can, let it go

Merci from Paris, RP ! You rule ! America we love ... Allez RP !
I love the melody. Perfect song to listen when you wanna lay down and just chill and relax.
Correction to first chorus:

But there's no comin' home
Theme music from Motorcycle Diaries?

Huggs and sympathy.

Ghost Towns is one of the standouts (though not my favorite - that would be "Mountains"), but also quite representative of the album, which I find really impressive and coherent. If you wanna make sure, the whole/most of the album is up on Youtube.

Cool - thanks for the heads up!
Good stuff indeed...but "The Mute" is better {#Music}

So I've started to listen to it and I have to say that the selection it's very accurate. Well done guys!

LOVE the piano part in this one
To the friends and brother I lost. I still miss you.
6 to 7
Quite likeable. I feel we need more handclaps in music. Maybe some fingersnaps too. Knucklecracks might be a step too far though. Accordion sucks though
Mmmm, very fine, thank you Bill/Radio Paradise.
The kind of song that'll cause everyone to go quiet and listen, without saying a word about it, usually around the end of an evening together just before you admit to yourself "it's time I ought to really go, now."

Haunting, affecting music by this band.
I heard they (he) uses only vintage, period instruments; 19th century items, real hand claps.
Authentic is the thing.

This song is growing and growing on every listening!

This song has the same melody with a greek song from 1996 called "Small Motherland". It was also sung by Marios Fragoulis but other greek singers as well. Here is the link to the original:

Music was written by composer George Andreou.

 
Wonder if that's live clapping or manufactured on a computer.    I want to think it's live.  I like it! 
Typical voice..
Handclaps are usually unwarranted in music, but they work OK here.
 Darn song is growing on me. I'll see that 3 and raise it to a 6
Can we keep this? Its nice.

Well, this is a bit lovely.
Is that a squeezebox I hear? Whatever it is, I likey what it lends to this ditty. At first listen, a 7.
..8 >> 9..smoove..
first time hearing this. i really like the vibe of the song.
The clapping is annoying.
First up, here.
Odd web site. He's been around a while. Worth another listen.
