lyrics

This old street of mine,
Doesn’t care what you think,
Doesn’t stop to think twice
Of how nice it will be
When the leaves change again.

She’s my homecoming queen,
And her porches sit right,
With the smell of the air,
Lifting crickets and cares,
But she tells me to go.

She’s a friend that ain’t friendly,
But she calms just as cool as she caves,
When you push and you pull,
It’s the you that you love who she saves.

So we open the doors,
And shout right through our lungs,
And the trees whisper “Ain’t nothin’ permanent,”
Of course there’s the way we all talk.

There’s the way we all walk,
When our problems catch fire,
And the sidewalks are flooded,
The boots caked with mud,
It’s the way we respond.

She’s a friend that ain’t friendly,
But she calms just as cool as she caves,
When you push and you pull,
It’s the you that you love who she saves.
There’s space in my heart
for a place that can shape who you are,
And a heart in a place
That can bleed through your thoughts from afar.

It’s a long, long, long, long road.
