“Pavement Cracks”

The city streets are wet again with rain
But I’m walkin’ just the same
Skies turn to the usual grey
When you turn to face the day
And love don’t show up in the pavement cracks
All my water colours fade to black
I’m goin’ nowhere and I’m ten steps back
All my dreams have fallen flat

(Love don’t show in the pavement cracks
There will be no turning back)

Time and space will pass us by and by
When we don’t see eye to eye
I would have done anything
For happiness to bring …
But it don’t show up in the pavement cracks
I can’t even cover up my tracks
I’m goin’ nowhere and I’m light years back
Ooh I wish you well

How come
Every day
I’m still waiting for the change?
How come
I still say
Give me strength to live?

Where is my comfort zone?
A simple place to call my own
‘Cause everything I wanna be
Comes crashing down on me
And it don’t show up in the pavement cracks
I can’t even recognise my tracks
You and I can’t turn the whole thing back
Ooh I wish you well
