Today I saw another place I can cross off my list
A place I still remember where we used to kiss
Now it can join the buses and the planes and the trains
and the garbage heap of memories at the back of my brain
and yeah we used to travel every weekend we could
I thought it was for us but how I misunderstood
You were only running from the past five years
on a break up so severe you never got to the tears

and oh, is this really what you wanted?
Now your past is only haunting
what you're supposed to have with me

I got these streets
Doesn't matter where i'm going
I got these streets
Walk away from what i'm knowing
I got these streets
Walls that never see me crying
Strangers pass by
where you were once there by my side

You would be the driver while the passenger seat
was filled with just a man you never wanted to meet
and my mother even told me that you weren't so discrete
and we had to face our demons on our own terms you see

I suppose I should be thankful or even be glad
that I helped you find a place at least that wasnt so sad
But now i'm just a moment where you'll look back and smile
so i'll look to my speedo and count every mile

and oh, is this really what you wanted?
Now your past is only haunting
what you're supposed to have with me

I got these streets
Doesn't matter where i'm going
I got these streets
Walk away from what i'm knowing
I got these streets
Walls that never see me crying
Strangers pass by
where you were once there by my side

Oh oh oh, strangers pass me by

Every one says let go
What am I holding on to
But I can't even tell them
Cause I no longer know you
but

I got these streets
Doesn't matter where i'm going
I got these streets
Walk away from what i'm knowing
I got these streets
Walls that never see me crying
Strangers pass by
where you were once there by my side

Oh oh oh, strangers pass me by

Once there by my side

Oh oh oh, strangers pass me by

Oh oh oh

strangers pass by
where you were once there by my side
