lyrics

It’s that place where everyone leaves
Their old broken stoves
And couches with cigarette burns
The alley cat roams
Lurks by the garbage cans
While a shady character patiently waits his turn

Leave those things behind
You don’t need anything more this time
Lost in the backstreet
Torn jeans and dirty feet
Waiting for you to come home

It’s a dead end place
You know where this goes to
Wandering out in the dark and the cold and rain
No, you won’t find what you’ve been looking for
Every one of those streets just looks the same

Leave those things behind
You don’t need anything more this
Lost in the back street
Torn jeans and dirty feet
Waiting for you to come home
