The Iron City Song

(Dedicated to the memory of Brian C. Nalven)

Music and Lyrics by Shelley

Verse 1
A message on a machine
A weekend filled with laughter
A black cloud in the distance
The wind shifts direction
I spin around until I'm dizzy
And in the whirlwind I forget
But now I know the message goes unanswered
Let's talk of anything, anything, anything else

Chorus
One more Iron City with my friends
I'll have one more Iron City with my friends
Raise a can and talk about
Anything, anything else
One more Iron City with my friends

Verse 2
A quiet voice on the line
Conversation closes distance
People I barely noticed
Friendship intensified
I sit alone and hold my breath
But then I know I'm wasting time
It doesn't matter now, we're all together
Talking of anything, anything, anything else

Chorus

Verse 3
A clipping from a paper
Middle of the table
Unlikely congregation
Memories burned in my mind
An indescribable emotion
Some laughter and some catching up
If I could tell each one just how much they mean
We talk of anything, anything, anything else

Chorus

Verse 4
A single rose on a railing
Unfocused crowd of faces
A bright day cast in shadow
A vicegrip on my soul
We gather 'round at Fenimore's
And then, when they close it down
We'll slam back some Rocks at Sandy's Clam Bar
And talk of anything, anything, anything else

Chorus (x2)

Outro
I'll have one more Iron City for my friend
