lyrics

The story of Paul and Anna, two teens from Texarkana
who wanted to feel alive one night,
Drove out to lovers' lane at dark, and put Paul's Ford in park
but something didn't feel right
She was nervous for his touch, and he wanted to feel a rush,
but they were surprised by a sight
Paul was blinded by a light, clubbed in the head with a lead pipe,
the phantom told Anna to run for her life

Welcome to the town that fears sundown, Texarkana
Welcome to the town that fears sundown, Texarkana


The story's been told before, the words sink to your core,
The scenes reply at night when you're alone,
The stories are the same, and the endings never change,
the mystery's remain unsolved,
The memories grow old, but feelings are still cold,
and we don't trust each other's mind,
So now what have we done, our feelings have grown numb,
and I don't trust myself sometimes

Welcome to the town that fears sundown, Texarkana
Welcome to the town that fears sundown, Texarkana
