'Cross the Shrewsbury

from by Ryan Doyle



You hurt me when you left
School got out, I felt I had no place
A summer spent in such a liminal space
I'm on my way

I hurt you when I left
It was drizzling off and on
Just trying to put the damage on
I'm on my way

For whom's this latest serenade
Kick off the bulkhead and row
'Cross the Shrewsbury of my soul

I wish I had the body of Alexander Mascari
Outside of Krauszer's with them roller coaster screams
Making amends with you in my dreams

In my dreams, we’re walking on the water
But we’re only walking down the street
Just practicing our Bob Dylan cruelty
We got clovers and clubs on our sleeves

We’re just trying to be someone we’re not
