Lyrics

Walk With Me, Angie

Written By: Michael Zuko

it's not complicated
or sophisticated
put your arm through mine
do it everytime...

...we walk down the block
with the street light buzz
put your arm through mine
magic every time

you walk with me, angie
walk with me, angie
walk with me...'till the city stops

nothing serious
just the two of us
moving side by side
one late winter night

walk with me, angie
walk with me, angie
walk with me...'till the city stops

you said little things
are the ones that count
with your hand in mine
i've got no doubt

walk with me, angie
walk with me, angie
walk with me...'till the city stops

'till the city stops
'till the city...stops

On The El

Written By: Michael Zuko

when i feel that things are smothering...i look up in the sky
not as high as you'd think...30 feet is fine.
with the summer sidewalk blistering, up the stairs i go
on the platform, the cars are glistening...the wheels start to roll
towards the ocean so blue, the sand goes on for miles
grace and thunder - it always makes me smile

...and the girl on the el...
she is fixing her hair in the window
northbound, who knows why...or what she'll find...when she arrives...on the el

and when the memories start to fade away, up the stairs i go
through the turnstiles of another time, the wood and creosote
I see silver and red, go flying by
grace and thunder - it always makes me smile

...and the girl on the el...
she is fixing her hair in the window
northbound, who knows why...or what she'll find...when she arrives...on the el
