Emerson Drive — Painted Too Much Of This Town lyrics

(Keith Follese/Michael White/Wade Kirby)

This town has only seven roads
And only three stoplights
I'm finding out that there's not much room
For a memory to hide
Can't seem to find a single place
That you and me ain't been
It's like pieces of our love have covered every inch
I used to love this little town so much
But it'll never be the way that it was

Chorus:
'Cause we've painted too much of this town
If I was gonna stay here I'd have to burn it down
Not a sidewalk or a street sign
A building I can (could) pass by
Or a corner that I can go around
'Cause we've painted too much of this town

There's a soccer field behind the school
Where we shared our first kiss
That little shop on College Street
Where you bought that red dress
That rooftop is where we watched that summer sun come up
That window in that jewelry store
We saw we were in love
Yeah, everything around here stays the same
And I wish to God it never would have changed

(Repeat Chorus)

I gotta leave it all behind me
(This town)
There's just too much to remind me

'Cause we've painted too much of this town
If I was gonna stay here I'd have to burn it down
Not a sidewalk or a street sign
A building I can (could) pass by
Or a corner that I can go around
'Cause we've painted
Yeah, we've painted too much of this town

Yeah, too much of this town
Oh, too much of this town
Too much of this town

There's only seven roads
Too much of this town
