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 colors 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 want to be
    Comes crashing down on me
    And it don't show up in the pavement cracks
    I can't even recognize my tracks
    You and I can't turn the whole thing back
    Ooh I wish you well

    (Love don't show in the pavement cracks
    There will be no turning back) Writer/s: ANNIE LENNOX
