I've been feeling this too long
when you leave it all goes wrong
the only thing I know
it isn't right

busy streets have lost the rush
buildings tower turn to dust
like everything just disappeared
in the night
yeah

it's when I walk these city streets
I realize the time that just went by
don't you know
like an old friend I hardly know
now that I've been away for all this time

I was hoping this would pass
but once it's here it's here to last
I wish it could just all remain the same
I'm a stranger when I'm home
cause all alone is all I know
that's what happens when you go astray
yeah

it's when I walk these city streets
I realize the time that just went by
that just went by
like an old friend I hardly know
now that I've been away for all this time

I know I've made my bed
but sad thoughts are in my head
barely holding back the tears
but when I watch the living dead
wake up and break their bread
I know it's not for me
yeah

it's when I walk these city streets
I realize the time that just went by
don't you know
like an old friend I hardly know
now that I've been away for all this time

you're on your own
you have to hold
on to what you feel's rightly yours
don't let anyone tell you
it ain't worth the time
