lyrics

old musician store

they’re packing their bags they’re headed for the shore
the old musician store is up for sale
where will the kids go with no musician store

the sales have been slow at the old musician store
the rent keeps getting high always more and more
but they can’t give anymore at the old musician store

the guitars on the wall have seen the best of years
they fought for what was right and sometimes whatever was wrong now the cases are closed

the parking lot’s empty outside the old musician store
the cigarettes all swept away from in front of the door, babe
time to clean up the old musician store

go on inside now take a look for yourself
whether old or middle aged or newly born, the ghosts are all there
now that the sign is hung

in twenty more years will there be musician stores
or will we live all by ourselves with no real music alone in the dark
no need to talk to anyone no musician store
no need to learn from anyone no musician store
no need to marvel anymore no musician store
