You were in love with the morning snowfall
You were in love with outer space
And you were in love with photographed flowers
You were in love with baseball diamonds
And now you miss Bicycle Laughing Street
Until it is morning in the city

You were in love with opera singing
You were in love when they made the towers
You were in love with Clara Rockmore
You were in love with new apartments
And now you miss Bicycle Laughing Street
Until it is morning in the city

How could you tell
I've been longing
For your death
For you

You were in love with the arctic ocean
You were in love with photographed mountains
And you were in love with the lives of pianos
You were in love with Sarah on rooftops
But tonight you miss Bicycle Laughing Street
Until it is morning in the city

How could you tell
I've been longing
For your death
For you

And in the darkness
Every night
I've known of the spark
That swallowed the shadows

I've wished I was with you
Aboard an ocean liner
Set sail for Europe but I know
You would never need
Someone for travelling

So tonight you miss Bicycle Laughing Street
And only the stars will see you leave

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "the lives of pianos" not "eliza pianos".
