When I walk along your city streets and look into your eyes,
When I see that simple sadness that upon your features lies.
If my spirit starts to sink, it comes as no surprise,
it's been a long way from anywhere like heaven to your town, this town.
Note: This probably belongs in the Less infamous Lyric Association Game thread, but after reading the poem by Allen Ginsberg above, I just couldn't get this song out of my head. Music lyrics can (sometimes) qualify as poetry, no?
I believe that music lyrics make some of the best poetry.
