"Second Avenue" as written by and Tim Moore....
Since we can no longer make it, girl,
I found a new place to live my life.
It's really no place at all,
Just a hole in the wall, you see.
It's cold and dusty but I let it be,
Livin' here without you,
On Second Avenue.
And since our stars took different paths,
I guess I won't be shavin' in your looking glass.
Guess my old friendly grin,
Must have started to dim, somehow,
And I certainly don't need it now,
Still, I keep smiling through,
On Second Avenue.
I can still see you standing
There on the third-floor landing.
The day you visited we hardly said a word.
Outside it was rainin',
You said you couldn't be stayin,
And you went back to your flowers and your birds.
Since we can no longer see the light
The way we did when we kissed that night,
Then all the things that we felt,
Must eventually melt and fade,
Like the frost on my window pane
Where I wrote, "I Am You,"
On Second Avenue.

    TranslationWhat does "Where I wrote, 'I Am You,'
    On Second Avenue" mean?

    General CommentIts about a guy who's trying to adjust to life without someone who's the love of his life & is now living apart from the person. He's so entrenched with this affair of the heart, that his ex was his whole life to him. "I am you" he writes on the frost of the inside of his window payne, is his way of saying he's devoid of self, soul or purpose without his estranged lover. Beautiful song.
