Today I woke with the sunrise
Constant fears keep me alive
But I never know the truth
Light strikes across the bridge like fires.

Reminding me of Ipswich Street
And train rides through the darkest nights.
Drunken words break the mold of who we are.
My mind is gone to my own safe space,
And here I stay.

You stood in that doorway
Watching me walk away.
With your lips sealed
Hiding that whisper
Knowing don’t go
Is all it would take.

Boarded windows and broken TVs
Leave me defenseless against
The boredom that overwhelms me.
And I’ll be gone,
I’ll be gone before you leave
Like the sunrise in the rear view.

Not a day goes by
That I don’t wish
For what could have been.
If we had only known
Where we were headed
We could have taken the same way home,
Instead of sleeping alone.

Bring me back
I’m so tired of sleeping alone (bring me back)

The Quiet City Screams Boston, Massachusetts

The Quiet City Screams is Pop Punk band from Boston, MA that originated at the end of 2009.

Growing up listening to such bands as New Found Glory, Blink 182, and Jimmy Eat World, they wanted to capture the energy and spirit these bands had as well as the emotion. Up beat tempos, catchy sing a longs, and a heart on your sleeve attitude have become the corner stones of the band.
