Amity Gardens
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Utopia Parkway

Angel broke her wing 
Oh, you poor thing 
The hum of the motor gave way to 
The tick tick ticking of the clock 
And the rattle of springs 
The Buick's in the drive 
It's good to be alive 

And if you knew now what you knew then 
You wouldn't want to go home 
Wouldn't want to go 
If you knew now what you knew then 
You wouldn't want to go to Amity Gardens again 

It isn't very much, but 
for now it's home 
A room in the shadow of a funny-looking man 
On the phone to the bank about a default loan 
I thank you very much 
Ta ta we'll be in touch 

And if you knew now what you knew then 
You wouldn't want to go home 
Wouldn't want to go 
If you knew now what you knew then 
You wouldn't want to go to Amity Gardens again 

Where you came from 
And act like you tried 
Cause somethings are better kept 
Deep down inside 
But you'rs not driving 
You're along for the ride 
Just checking out the scene 
And taking in the green
