  • Lyrics
  • A pilgrim on a pilgrimage
    Walked across the Brooklyn Bridge
    His sneakers torn
    In the hour when the homeless move their cardboard blankets
    And the new day is born

    Folded in his backpack pocket
    The questions that he copied from his heart
    Who am I in this lonely world?
    And where will I make my bed tonight?
    When twilight turns to dark

    Questions for the angels
    Who believes in angels?
    Fools do
    Fools and pilgrims all over the world

    If you shop for love in a bargain store
    And you don't get what you are bargain for
    Can you get your money back?
    If an empty train in a railway station
    Calls you to its destination
    Can you choose another track?

    Will I wake up from these violent dreams?
    With my hair as white as the morning moon?

    Questions for the angels
    Who believes in angels?
    I do
    Fools and pilgrims all over the world

    Downtown Brooklyn
    The pilgrim is passing a billboard
    And catches his eyes
    It's Jay-Z
    He's got a kid on each knee
    He is wearing clothes that he wants us to try

    If every human on the planet
    And all the buildings on it
    Should disappear
    Would a zebra grazing in the African Savannah
    Care enough to share one zebra tear?

  • Janet from Glendale, CaDoes anyone know when Sheet Music for songs "The Afterlife" and "Rewrite" will be available to purchase?
    I can not find Sheet Music for any songs from Paul Simon's album, SO BEAUTIFUL OR SO WHAT.
    Any information, appreciated. Thank you, Janet
