Streetlight

Oh streetlight
Under starlight
Guide me
Home tonight

Stranded
On 1st Avenue
And my only way to 8th
Is on these old shoes

Just passed
Beth Israel
I’m not convinced
I’m completely miserable

Bought your
EP
And there’s a tinfoil pizza
In Queens awaiting me

Third draft
In too deep
But when I get home
The neighborhood’s asleep

And who needs a life raft
When you’ve got a good buoy?
I can only live the life
Which feels true to me
If there’s no time
There’s no time
Which is yours or mine

By sunlight
The streetlight
Is godlike
From its omniscient height

And the stage in
The Map Room
Is occupied by ghosts
That could never breakthrough


I take
Attendance
Circle a bubble
To confirm a child’s existence

Tell me
How to reach you
While minding deliverance
Is beyond my purview

Everyone wants
An answer
As if it would be the same
For each and every one of them

And who needs innocence
Compared with the variety of
Experience
I’d bet your life stays the same
Whether you are one of the few
Hearing this
If there’s a streetlight
There’s starlight
There’s a beautiful, original
One-of-a-kind
Mind
