Sirens ring, the shots ring outA stranger cries, screams out loudI had my world strapped against my backI held my hands, never knew how to actChorus:And the same black line that was drawn on youWas drawn on meAnd now it’s drawn me in6th avenue heartacheBelow me was a homeless manI’m singin’ songs I knew completeOn the steps alone, his guitar in handIt’s fifty years, stood where he standsNow walkin’ home on those streetsThe river winds move my feetSubway steam, like silhouettes in dreamsThey stood by me, just like moonbeamsLook out the window, down upon that streetAnd gone like a midnight was that manBut I see his six strings laid against that wallAnd all his things, they all look so smallI got my fingers crossed on a shooting starJust like me-just moved on
