21 Lonely Street

Song Info

A drunk, he plays the blues downtown

His voice is carried on the wind like the trash

It’s tragic like the tears of a clown

He drank away the last of his cash


I wish you were here to hear him with me

Even if only, only for a little while


‘Til then I’m at 21 lonely street

Walkin’ through this town on my lonely feet

Dancing on my own to this lonely beat

Wishing on a lonely star

That I could be with you where you are


Watch TV but there’s nothing on

The same old songs that I’ve heard before

I can’t cry my tears are all gone

I’m left here just missing you more


I wish you were here to say it’s ok

I wish I could get off this block

I wish was there sharing today

I wish I could hurry up, hurry up the clock


Til then I’m at 21 lonely street

Walking through this town on my lonely feet


Dancing on my own to this lonely beat

Wishing on a lonely start

That I could be with you where you are

A lyric I discovered in 2013 in a pile of lyrics I had from years ago. This was written around 1997 I think.
