And when I see the sign that points one way
The lot we used to pass by every day

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

From deep inside the tears that I'm forced to cry
From deep inside the pain that I chose to hide

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
Now as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes
For me it cries

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
Now as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes
For me it cries

Your name and mine inside a heart upon a wall
Still finds a way to haunt me, though they're so small

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

    General Comment:It's a song about a 16 year old boy coming to the realization the 19 year old platinum blond he has a crush on, just isn't in to him.

    General Comment:Renee Fladen-Kamm went on to become a classical singer and vocal teacher in San Francisco. Yes, it's a song about a real girl, a real crush. She had platinum blond hair; the Left Banke song "Pretty Ballerina" was also about her.

    General Comment:This is my mom's all time favorite song. Being alone and constantly reminded of it must suck. Left Banke, they were really one hit wonders. I wonder what ever happened to them...?

    General Comment:I love this song. It's so sad how this teenage boy feels about a breakup with his girlfriend. But I think it's kind of creepy that he's following her.

    General Comment:I believe it's "the LOT we used to pass by every day," though I don't think it really alters the meaning of the song. Additionally, the line after "...upon my weary eyes" is "For me it cries."

    General Comment:I just read this:

    "...Michael Brown, wrote the song when he was 16 years old, and it was about fellow band member Tom Finn’s girlfriend, who he fell in love with. He says when they went to record the song “My hands were shaking when I tried to play, because she was right there in the control room. There was no way I could do it with her around, so I came back and did it later.”

    General Comment:I don't think one can get enough of songs about unrequited love. I love the chorus, despite the dreary subject matter.
