Soundtrack Of You

We walked those old city streets like we owned them

Warm breath turning into clouds of white

Walking back to your tiny apartment

Ellis street dark, we once found love here

You take your coat off

The sounds of the city, from open windows

You ask if I wanna know you

You play me your play list

Every song reminds me of you

Is this still the soundtrack of you

I asked you to leave this town with me

You stared out the window, into dying stars

You say nothing, another silent no

It’s so hard to move on, knowing you moved on

I hate this city

I’m so tired of everything

That old apartment always drafty and cold

Impatient traffic rolling off to distant places

I now avoid Ellis street

Strangers spying from broken blinds

God, this is all killing me

Do you ever think of Ellis street

Was it a dream we once lived in

I wish we’d moved out to the country

In the past, there’s no new beginnings

I’m homesick, wishing away my past

You say nothing, another silent no

It’s so hard to move on, knowing you moved on
