music & lyrics by Russell Johnson

Old haunts 

And being back in this town 

I can feel the stoplight change 

There's only one around 

 

It's the same one 

That I watched you blow through 

With another boy in the shotgun 

Back in 2002 

 

And your car 

Got totaled in 2003 

But the argument we had inside it 

It's still following me down the street 

 

Then I passed 

The opera house they turned into apartments 

And I wonder if the place is haunted 

If they can still hear the music inside it 

 

Ain't it funny how 

I feel nothing for you now 

But I can still feel my heart breaking 

On First and Canal 

 

Look over there 

That's where I got my first DUI 

I was coming from the pup 'round the corner 

The one that you can smoke inside 

 

I only went 

Because you said that you might roll through 

So I told my friends to meet me there 

So it looked like wasn't waiting on you 

 

Ain't it funny how 

I feel nothing for you now 

But I can still feel my heart breaking 

On First and Canal 

 

I moved away 

I tried to become a star 

I thought if I could date a supermodel 

I'd be welcome back home at the bars 

 

That didn't work out 

But you know what the worst part is 

I find myself comparing 

Every girl to our first kiss 

 

Ain't it funny how 

I feel nothing for you now 

But this was the place that made me 

And I can still feel it tearing me down 

 

Ain't it funny how 

I feel nothing for you now 

But I can still feel my heart breaking 

In this tiny, troubled town 

I can still feel my heart breaking 

On First and Canal
