Cold Side of the Avenue

from by John Alan Kennedy

lyrics

you always walked on the cold side of the avenue
you always hid down deep in your coat
you always took steps so quiet and well-measured
i never thought that one day you’d keep going

quick down the avenue, past the alleyway and bodega,
softly through shadows as dark as your hair
you reached the corner, i watched you turn your head
you blew me a kiss, and then you let go

slower than slow
undeterred by the engines
egged on by indifference or maybe your tears
crushed in the intersect of horror and fear

i never thought that one day you’d keep going
i never thought that one day you’d be gone
i never thought that one day you’d stop trying
i never thought that one day you’d be gone
