Well I went back, back to Old Street
on the way to walk downtown
When I saw you singing softly
I was lost among the sounds

I thought someday, you would find me
in a dream, a holy light
but I would still walk, back to Old Street
on my own, along the night

And I'll wait for you
Yes I will meet you there...

Well I went home, back to Old Street
Saw the town by candlelight
Brushed the face of what I once was
Saw remains of my own kind

All my old secrets in the schoolyard
Buried deep with my regrets
But I would still walk, back to old street, you can
forgive but not forget.

And I'll wait for you
A sign to see me through
Oh, tell me that I'm dreaming
We'll make it home all right
Oh sing me back to Old Street for the night.

If you go back, back to Old Street
will you tell them I said hi?
Oh, I see it all the time
When the morning comes to light
When you see where I once
Loved and lost,
The morning comes to light
well, back to Old Street for the night.
