Sidewalk
c. 2003

I walk the streets alone again tonight
Just like a thousand times before
My only friend is the sidewalk
He follows me wherever I go

but it could be so different now
if I just opened up my heart and how
I got so used to being by myself
I forgot to include any one else

CHORUS
Thought it’d be good to be alone tonight
Be on my own tonight but I was wrong, so wrong
I should have stayed with you at home tonight
now I know that by your side is where I belong

I've walked a half life down the drain
I feel the shove as I complain
I know the noose like I know the rain
But I don’t have to go so low again

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Became a victim to my own advice
To see the ants as I watch the ice
I’d Melt the world so I can hold you tight
Still it you that I want, it’s you that warms my heart

Every road leads me back to you
There’s no one else who takes me where you do
(only you)
no matter how far I walk
no matter how long I’m gone…
despite all my tough guy talk
you’re the one the only one

CHORUS

I walk the streets alone again tonight
Just like a thousand times before
