 "They’re digging for gold in my neighborhood Where all the old buildings stood And they keep digging down, down So that their cars can live underground The swinging of a wrecking ball Through these lathe and plaster walls Is letting all the shadows free The ones I wished still followed me Change, please don’t change Stay, stay the same I remember a winter’s night When we kissed beneath the street lamp light Outside our bar near the record store That have been condos for a year or more And now that our haunts have taken flight And been replaced with construction sites Oh how I feel like a stranger here Searching for something that’s disappeared.  They’re digging for gold in my neighborhood For what they say is the greater good But all I see is a long goodbye A requiem for a skyline It seems I never stop losing you As every dive becomes something new And all our ghosts get swept away It didn’t used to be this way Change, please don’t change Stay, stay the same Cranes devour the light Strange appetites I’ve ascribed these monuments A false sense of permanence I’ve placed faith in geography To hold you in my memory I’m sifting through these wreckage piles Through the rubble of bricks and wires Looking for something I’ll never find They’re digging for gold in my neighborhood Where all the old buildings stood And they keep digging down, down So that their cars can live underground It seems I never stop losing you As every dive becomes something new And all our ghosts get swept away It didn’t used to be this way."
