Washington Heights Lyrics

Like tales of Cabrini woods
Trading flights of

Mind how the stories fold
Mere ambition shines behind the

Eyes always burning north
Or over past the bridge’s lines

Far on, from these streets
Beyond the running and the

Routine of our noise
The fumes trapped in

Bags, Bennett underfoot
Needles mark the interrupted

Trail walked by the ghosts
Our alter-egos bruised while

The A train calls again
One last super-sonic run

Another late-night Pinehurst
Another canvas changed

Reach for the recent future
All hopes prearranged

Replay the evening shadows
Remake the morning star

We leave, to live
We are left with who we are

Marked arms, adverted look
Shielding from the show of

Charmed lives spinning past
Sheer revision lost behind the

Eyes always turning north
Beyond the drop of Overlook

Paths shown, as they bring
fortune in the waiting and the

Route shaped by our choice
Assumes that we

Find here underfoot
Spaces left to bridge the broken

Trails left by our ghosts
Our altered streets resume

The morning calls again
One last super-sonic run

Another late-night Pinehurst
Another canvas changed

Reach for the recent future
All hopes prearranged

Replay the evening shadows
Remake the morning star

We leave, to live
We are left with who we are
