"Accidently Kelly Street" as written by and Timothy James O'connor....
Here's a door and
Here's a window
Here's the ceiling
Here's the floor
The room is lit like
A black and white movie
The t.v.'s on, that's what it's for
And if you walk real slowly
You can feel the planet breathe
There's no need to feel so lowly
Now that we've all learned to give

Accidently kelly street
Where friends and strangers
Sometimes meet
Accidently kelly street
I never thought life
Could be so sweet

In the garden birds are singing
The sun is shining on the path
The wind is talking to the flowers
The dogs and cats all take a bath
And if you stop that talking
You can hear the traffic sigh
Throw away those keys
Start walking, watch those
Tiny things go by

Accidently kelly street
Where friends and strangers
Sometimes meet
Accidently kelly street
I never thought life
Could be so sweet

It's sunday everyday
And there's no need to rush around
Inside of everybody there's sun
And laughter to be found
It seems that we're on holidays
And sleeping in is not a sin
All the housework's done by teatime
I'm feeling good about
The way i've been

Perhaps this optimism
Will crash on down
Like a house of cards
I know that my decision
To change my life was not that hard

Accidently kelly street
Where friends and strangers
Sometimes meet
Accidently kelly street
I never thought life
Could be so sweet

Accidently kelly street
Where friends and strangers
Sometimes meet
Accidently kelly street
I never thought life
Could be so sweet

Accidently...
Accidently...
Accidently kelly street
I never thought life
Could be so sweet!

    General CommentI remember hearing, back when this song came out, that it was called Accidently Kelly Street because one of the band got their new address wrong, ie. their new house was in Kelby Street or something, they didnt realise until after they gave the address out, and the house in Kelly Street became a metaphor for a perfect house. Now I'm trying to remember the story (as you do...) and can't find anything about it! Anyone remember? I wish I could ask Angie!
