North Richmond Street is blind
It's too hard to keep saying goodbye
Early morning snow is falling
shorter days of winter coming

Araby
The darkness is all you see
Take care of me
The same blood is all I bleed

I could see the smallest things
Lights flicker in the houses
on the west side of the street
If I could find the perfect words to sing
maybe you would understand
the truth that I have seen
Late afternoon, the snow's still falling
colder days of winter coming

Araby
The darkness will set you free
Take care of me
One life is all I need

North Richmond Street will bloom
Greener days of spring are coming soon

    General CommentDefinite reference to James Joyce's short story of the same name. Part of the _Dubliners_ collection. Chris is so damn cool for writing a song about this.
