Going To A Town (Live)

Going To A Town (Live)

Rufus Wainwright

I'm going to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm going to a place that has already been disgraced
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down

I'm so tired of America

I'm gonna make it up for all of the Sunday Times
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I'm so tired of you America

Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I got a life to lead
America

I got a life to lead

Tell me
Do you really think you go to hell for having loved
Tell me
Enough for thinking everything you've done is good
I really need to know
After soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I'm so tired of America

I really need to know

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm going to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm so tired of you America

Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I've got a life to lead
America

I got a life to lead
I got a soul to feed
I got a dream to heed
And that's all I need

Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I'm going to the town that has already been burnt down
