Lyrics

 
Trouble down Atlantic Street
Keep your head down low
Picking up the pace as we go
Moonlight shines through broken glass
Splintered in a rage
riddled in the cracks: a concrete page
 
And I want you to be alright
I want you to be alright
 
Hurry through the whistlin’ wind
Keep your eye on me
Grabbing at the things we never see
Building on a shaky past with little left to spare
But I know you and I know you care
 
And I want you to be alright
I want you to be alright
Thinking now of sunrise light
You upon the bed
Strange things last night I said
beyond the way of crooked luck
the path is still untread
with street signs we never read
 
And I want you to be alright
I want you to be alright
 
Burning through the orange light
Sheltered in the cold
A story that’s never told
 
Wrote a song to separate
the sounds inside my head
where emotion weighs like lead
further still the road ahead is choking on the sky
and the sad dreams that always die
 
And I want you to be alright
I want you to be alright
 
(From the album Seven Years Now)
