Song Description

Describes scenes of city life and commuting as people follow their careers. Highlights how it can be lonely, even if you say hello to everybody on the board-walk. If you ride the tracks at night, you get out to the smellof early morning bread baking.

Story Behind the Song

Remembers writing wishes and messages in chalk at school, How they get washed away in the streams of life, Even how dreams of love can wither in a lonely world of busy people.

Lyrics

Streetlife And A Lonely Man

Listen to the streetlife
lonely man in lovers dreams
walks along the board-walk
talks to everyone he sees.
Listen to the streetlife,
listen to the streetlife
board-walk talk and lovers dreams,
write it all in school chalk
wash away in streams

Sleepy drivers run the race of morning
win while yawning in their heads
chase promotion and their calling
leave their comfy and warm beds

Want to hold a gentle hand
need a strong and lonely man
could it be you understand

Music of the street is ours
we love the city?s moonlight hours
ride the Metro?s darkest tracks
cheapest shirts upon our backs
hot bread in the mist that?s rising
still wakes us up, is still surprising

Want to hold a gentle hand
need a strong and lonely man
could it be you understand

Traffic runs the race of morning
sleepy drivers win while yawning
commuter birds are sharing breakfast
crumbs that form a growing necklace
love is in the air and rising
still wakes us up, is still surprising

Want to hold a gentle hand
need a strong and lonely man
could it be you understand

Listen to the streetlife,
listen to the streetlife
board-walk talk and lovers dreams,
write it all in school chalk
wash away in streams
