The Street Sign Song

Written By: Martin Hailey

Right near where I live
There's a street sign with your name on it.
And I pass by everyday,
Tip my hat and while away but I know that you can not see me.

In fact you can't see me at all
Despite everything we're feeling
We're forced to build a wall.
In a fortress 'round our precious hearts
Keeping them in sustanance
Reliance on the food of love to wait 'til just enough's enough

When I'm walking to the train passing by the sign that bears your name.
Even if I run,
My time is out and I'm all undone
Like a bootlace pulling free,
An unkempt sail upon the sea,
You unravel me.

Such a splendid affectation
Like dipping toes in waters clear and blue.
Sometimes a desperation
Like something new is scaring you.

Right near where I live there's a street sign with your name on it.

When I'm walking to the train passing by the sign that bears your name.
Even if I run,
My time is out and I'm all undone
Like a bootlace pulling free,
An unkempt sail upon the sea,
You unravel me.

Oh it's the hopefulness and hopelessness,
This constant ache that breeds distress,
Elation pounding at my chest,
I'll never know release from this.

When I'm walking to the train passing by the sign that bears your name.
Even if my time has come
And I'm all undone
Like a bootlace pulling free,
An unkempt sail upon the sea,
You unravel me.
Like a bootlace pulling free,
An unkempt sail upon the sea,
The open bottle's repartee,
You unravel me.
