lyrics

Norfolk Street

I wandered outside, I needed to know
the world was still here under this blanket of snow
I sat in the drive ‘cause it’s too hard to sleep
When ghosts only whisper of Norfolk Street

Not long ago, before I bit my tongue,
The salt in the air brought life to these lungs
And when days got too hot or our troubles too deep
We washed our sins in the waves down Norfolk Street

Mosquitos that night clung to your frame
And I jealously waited to do just the same
The moon was a witness as I told you I’d keep
Every promise we made on Norfolk Street

But on that last night, I couldn’t close my eyes
I watched the thunder brake down as the cicadas cried

The water retreats, she sings to the sand
Buckets and pails, proud with shovel in hand
Driftwood and shells, discoveries to keep
Your heart never grows old on Norfolk Street

We cut through the park, and the leaves from the trees
Litter our footsteps like tears in the breeze
You pause and reflect, ask what’s better to keep
your heart or your word to Norfolk Street

I’m coming home,
I’m coming home,
I’m coming home
