I came here, I waited
To see it, to say this
What started on Fourth Street is finished.

I came back to see it
Through new eyes and feel it
I waited all night
On boards by the waterside.

I had a dream you went to New York
You found new friends
You had new work
I wasn't there, but I came to visit
We sat on the bridge and talked of the difference.

We spoke of the long ago
Promised each other we'd never get old
But that was a whole life ago
And now I'm on my own.

I came here to see it
Through new eyes and feel it
I waited all night on boards by the waterside.

I had a dream you went to New York
You found new friends
You had new work
I wasn't there, but I came to visit
I slept on your floor, watched the wind in the curtains.

Maybe it's enough to know
I never walk alone
I get by on my own
I'll always be my only home.

I came here, I waited
To see you, to say this
What started on Fourth Street is finished.
