Lyrics
I set my feet down upon that street
For the first time in many, many years
Old, familiar surroundings
But as I glimpsed the sights and smelled the air
My eyes began to well over with tears
In nostalgia, I’m drowning

I used to breathe this air each day
Throughout these passages I’d dream and scheme and play
But no one talks about the, no, no one talks about the…
The situations that forbade my kind to stay

I do my best to try and assist
This frail old woman with those familiar eyes
You know, she used to be stronger
But now she’s spinning round and round
Uncontrollably into a rapid demise
She probably won’t live much longer

She looks so frightened and confused
While Shirley Temple sings in infinite youth
But we won’t talk about it, we will not talk about it
Lest we reveal the piercing bitterness of truth
