After a falling-out with a friend I had visited in NYC, I originally wrote this as a song. But, of course, now I don’t remember the tune!
85th and Riverside
City of lights, its slice of the world
where friendships evolve and feeling unfurl
and you sit on the steps of a Brownstone reflecting
On words that were thrown without out you expecting
Your tone was so angry, your words were so cross
I felt myself drifting away
My heart, it was sinking, but the pain it would fade
I just hated to leave you that way.
(Chorus) Pick up the pieces you find, build something solid inside
When hearts collide
Time heals all wounds and friendships recover
the city of lights will go on
And though times get hard, there are others so easy
Just a small fall from grace from beyond
And times as it passes, still gets us back
the hearts are still beating inside
And you know where to find me (you know I won’t hide)
In that nest with my mouth open wide.
