lyrics

You're gonna have to walk a little differently down that street
Oh man you'll see some things you might have never seen
Look out the other side of that train you're moving on
Otherwise you're staring at all the places she has gone

When everything reminds you of the impossible you tried
Think about something different, forget about the day she cried
Careful on the stones of your new direction found...

The sympathy of lovers isn’t always real, isn’t always sound

That path that rose to meet two pairs of feet
That bridge across the highway where you meet
Shift these monuments around like sand
The memory is more powerful than the hand

Every angle changes
Every sky is new
How can this be hers
When this is all from you
That star she drew upon your wall is just another star
She’s left those damn things everywhere you know...

You're gonna have to walk a little differently down that street
Oh man you'll see some things you might have never seen
Look out the other side of that train you're moving on
Otherwise you're staring at all the places she has gone

That time you ran the stairs one floor to high
To find you were alone but closer to the sky
Now to wind your way back to the ground

The sympathy of lovers isn’t always real, isn’t always sound

That road it doesn't lead to her, it leads to something past
And anyway it's just a road and these things never last
Tear it up, destroy this place you've built up beam by beam
You'll see when things are built again how easy it all seems
That bus goes to a suburb
Not towards her heart
That light comes from a tower
Not from golden hair
The wind blows same as ever
Now you are apart
And in this city filled with light, still the people stare
