Quiet Hollers - Departure lyrics

When I was a bright young man Walking these quiet streets I always had some friends Waiting somewhere for me And people would pa** me by And say their good evenings And I'd take for granted I could even exist here As the girls go by on their shining bikes Three at a time In perfect synchronicity Their laughter falling in the rain And I feel like such a stranger And I feel like such a child And I feel like such a stranger Wish I could just be someone for a while When those bright fathers And their lovely wives Come home from dancing Looking so much alive When those same young mothers Have to, walking, pa** me by Only their children Ever look me in the eye As the girls go by on their shining bikes Three at a time In perfect synchronicity Their laughter falling in the rain And I feel like such a stranger And I feel like such a child And I feel like such a stranger Wish I could just be someone for a while I pa**ed my reflection In the the pretty little gallery windows And I tried to paint a picture Of what it was that I used to look like Before age and its vandals Took an icy wind to my face And I could walk these silver streets And not be a stranger to this place
