America – 5Th Avenue lyrics

Written by Gerry Beckley, ©1984
Found on Perspective.

Walking down 5th Avenue
I saw him walking there with you
People see and people talk
Word travels fast round my block

Might just save you the price of writing
I could save you an hour or two
Walking down 5th Avenue
Walking down 5th Avenue

Don't know what to ask of you
My mind is gettin' so confused
Even when I really try
Keeps sounding like I'm saying goodbye

Somewhere deep in my heart I'm hurtin'
'Cause I keep on remembering you
Walking down 5th Avenue
Walking down 5th Avenue
Such a long way to go

How many times must I look up and say
What kind of fool am I
But I can't turn my back on the times that we shared
No matter how I try

Walking down 5th Avenue
Can't seem to shake the thought of you
Even in the dark of night
Your memories of shining light

Though I'm tryin' to change direction
I pray what I saw ain't true
Walking down 5th Avenue
Walking down 5th Avenue
Such a long way to go

Do, do, do, do ...
