MY HEART IS THE BUMS ON THE STREET
WITH NOTHING TO EAT & THEIR DIRTY HANDS CUPPED UP
MY HEART IS THE SQUIRRELS IN THE PARK
LATE SUNDAY EVENING DODGING THE RAINDROPS
MY HEART IS A BARREL OF FIRE
THAT BLOWS BURNIN' ASHES AT A TELEPHONE WIRE
MY HEART IS THE AVENUE WIND RATTLIN' STREET SIGNS
WITH ITS DELICATE DIN…
WHAT DID I DO TO CAUSE YOU TO LEAVE ME?
GIRL IF YOU JUST KNEW WHAT I'M GOIN THRU
I LOST MY PRIDE, MY HEAD HANGS IN SORROW
EVERY INCH OF THE CITY
REMINDS ME OF YOU ~
MY HEART IS THE SCHOOLYARD SO EMPTY
VACANT OF SMILES & VOID OF ALL JOY
MY HEART IS THE GHETTO AT MIDNIGHT
TEEMING WITH BEATS THAT REVERBERATE FEAR
MY HEART IS THE NEWSPAPER BLOWIN'
DOWN THE STREET WHEN IT'S SNOWIN' AND NO ONES AROUND
MY HEART IS A SAXOPHONE SOLO FROM A 3RD STORY WINDOW
JUST BEFORE DAWN…
MY HEART IS THE SMELL OF THE SEWER,
THE TASTE OF THE LOBSTER, THE PRICE OF THE WINE
MY HEART IS THE RUSH OF THE TRAFFIC,
THE TUG OF THE MUSIC, THE SCENE OF THE CRIME
MY HEART IS A CROWD THAT KEEPS CHEERIN'
THE TRAINS BY THE RIVER
THE POINTS THAT WE SCORE
MY HEART IS THIS WONDEROUS CITY
WITH ITS LOVE AND ITS LIFE
AND ITS ONE… SLAMMIN' DOOR
