    "Eighteen" Lyrics

    Ellis Paul

    It was a summer night
    I took off in my old man's car
    I rolled the windows right on down
    I cranked up the radio
    And chased the meteors
    On a dirt road out of town

    There's a bonfire in Walker's field
    In the firelight our dreams revealed

    You can chase away your high school years
    Shadows dancing wildly at the scene
    But I never knew right then
    Just what it means
    To be eighteen
    To be eighteen

    The voice of Jimmy Aberdeen
    Still washes over me
    He had a laugh like a thunder cloud
    He was holding blue spray paint
    Jimmy was no saint
    But he could always draw a crowd

    That night
    We climbed the water tower in Walker's field
    That night
    Above the lights of town our fates were sealed

    That night
    Jimmy fell down through the darkness

    An ambulance brought silence to the scene

    And carried off the life
    And broken dreams
    Of Jimmy Aberdeen

    Now the years have passed
    The cabbie taps the glass
    We're outside
    My reunion hall
    He leaves me to the night
    I count the satellites
    I see the tower
    Looming tallâ?¦

    I'm taking on my memory
    I climbed the water tower for all to see

    I painted steel
    With cobalt blue
    Spelling out
    My graduation year
    Above the highway
    That took me out of here

    And I finally think
    I really know
    What it means
    To be eighteen
