Lonely Street
These empty lonely streets they are my resting place
no where to lay my head
maybe I'm a hopeless case
maybe I'm already dead
it's the memories theyre the hardest thing to remember

Sometimes in my mind I go back home
I can hear the laughter coming down the hall
SOmetimes in my mind
It doesnt seem that far at all
these empty lonely streets they are my hiding place
no where to hide my head maybe I'm a hopless case
maybe I'm already dead
it's the memories they are the cruelest things to remember

If there's life beyond the grave then lets begin it
if theres a place worst than hell well
maybe I', already in it
maybe I'm already dead
