Despite sharing nine promotional images the day before the song’s release, Hunt has yet to post anything else regarding “Downtown’s Dead” since it dropped. He recently spoke out about the status of his career, admitting that he isn’t writing as many songs as he used to.

[Verse 1]
The city’s so in style
All you see for miles are people spilling in and out of cars
Man, I love these bars are making a killin’
Everywhere I go looks like the place to be
I see people that I know and I feel like there’s no one here but me

[Chorus]
Downtown’s dead without you
Girls walk by and friends say “hi”
Then Friday night it might as well be just another
Tuesday night without you
As long as you’re still in my head
There ain’t no way that I can paint a ghost town red
Downtown’s dead, downtown’s dead

 

 

[Verse 2]
They’re dancing in the strobes
Out here in the throws of loud house music
Everything’s a blur
I don’t hear the words, but lips are moving
Try to get involved, but I’ve ’bout had enough of people wall to the wall
And I’m just holdin’ it up ’cause…

[Chorus]
Downtown’s dead without you
Girls walk by and friends say “hi”
Then Friday night it might as well be just another
Tuesday night without you
As long as you’re still in my head
There ain’t no way that I can paint a ghost town red
Downtown’s dead, downtown’s dead

[Bridge]
Free drinks, bright lights
What am I doing with my life?
Okay, I quit… I’ve had enough of this
‘Cause people are losing their minds
Can’t get you out of my head
I’m calling it a night
I’m crawling back to your bed…

[Chorus]
Downtown’s dead without you
Girls walk by and friends say “hi”
Then Friday night it might as well be just another
Tuesday night without you
As long as you’re still in my head
There ain’t no way that I can paint a ghost town red
Downtown’s dead, downtown’s dead

[Outro]
Downtown’s dead
Downtown’s dead
