"Cold Part Of Town" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
Dear darling,
Haven't seen you in a while
Found some change in my pocket
Thought I'd take a chance and dial

I'm all right
Just right now a little down.
It gets chilly over here.
It's a cold part of town.

Dear darling,
You were right about them all
When it all came down,
They never came around or called.
That's all right

I don't miss them anyhow,
But it gets lonely over here
It's a cold part of town
I'll go now.

Someone's waiting for the phone
It's raining
Getting dark and I'm alone
Yeah, I'll call you.

Can I sometime come time come around
It's so lonely over here
It's a cold, cold part of town.

    General CommentReminds me of my first month in the UK in the winter of 1996, calling close friends in Australia from a phone booth in Russell Square. It was cold, I was lonely and there was someone waiting for the phone......cue the music.

    General CommentI think we've all been in a similar situation at one time or another. :-)

    I always thought of this as the more melancholy sister to I Wanna Be Your Friend Again.

    The lyrics are pretty self explanatory, but the tone is rather somber and one almost gets the feeling of having so many more things to say, but being afraid to say them.

    It's really a beautiful little song, and the lyrics are a gem - simple, straight forward, and unabashed.
