Lyrics

Back in the neighborhood, where life is bittersweet Where precious love is lost along the dirty streets The fences falling down, the papers blow around Where lonely blades of grass push through the broken glass Back in the neighborhood I trace the battlescars among the broken cars And premonitions scralled across the crumbling walls I feel your firey hands, I see the place we lay Our stolen paradise, the world was far away Back in the neighborhood My memories are begging me To leave the past in its debris I’ve often thought I’ve won the fight But it still haunts me every night I hear the laughter float across the morning air The children seized the day without a single care They rode on battered bikes and fantasies No time to swallow the uncertainty Back in the neighborhood Back in the neighborhood, where I spent half my years I knew what living was, the future never clear We carved our promises on dying coral trees And cast our wishes to the farthest galaxies Back in the neighborhood My memories are begging me To leave the past in its debris I’ve often thought I’ve won the fight But it still haunts me every night
