Song Description

He walks along the boardwalk talks to everyone he meets.Wears his new designer jeans, goes to late night clubs, hopes he will meet someone, have a one night stand to ease his lonliness. His parents hoped he would fall in love with the girl next door and miss him. The singer notices him and wonders if he could be the strong and lonely man she is looking for.

Story Behind the Song

How lonely a city can be for someone. Someone who has left family and their roots behind. Moving to take up a new job, hoping to make friends, meet someone, build a life there.The singer sees this lonely man and wonders if he could be who she is looking for.

Lyrics

Listen to the street life
lonely man in lover's dreams
walks along the board-walk
talks to everyone he sees.
Listen to the street life,
listen to the street life.

His folks are in Wisconsin,
hoped he'd choose the girl next door,
have picket fence and parlour,
opened up a general store.
Listen to their street life,
listen to the street life.

I want to hold a gentle hand,
need a kind and lonely man,
could it be you'll understand?

He feels his hopes dissolving,
every day the city beats,
still tries to keep evolving
when he walks the city's streets.
Listen to the street life,
listen to the street life.

Keeps his phone on speed dial,
wears his new designer jeans,
hopes the world will notice
a lonely man on New York's scene
Listen to the street life,
listen to the street life.

I want to hold a gentle hand,
need a kind and lonely man,
could it be you'll understand?

Listen to his heartbeat,
watch his Michael Moonwalk sways,
frequent bars and night clubs,
hopes one time that he'll get laid.
Listen to the street life,
listen to the street life.

Listen to the street life
lonely man in lover's dreams
walks along the board-walk
talks to everyone he sees.
Listen to the street life,
listen to the street life.


Write it all in school chalk,
and wash away in streams,
wash away in streams,
wash away your dreams,
all your lovely dreams,
all those dreams.
