I Don’t Walk Down Ninth Anymore
Was cleaning out my hotmail account this afternoon (you know, as opposed to ‘working’ and stuff), and I found a bunch of songs that I wrote circa 2006-2007. Now, I’m not gonna post all of them, because there’s about five billion and all, but this one in particular made me cry. Obviously, that was a very prolific period in my songwriting career, for obvious reasons, but this really stood out to me as something that I still think is really great and, to be honest, I’d completely forgotten about until six hours ago..
It’s ironic I suppose, considering I’m about to spend two weeks in Manhattan.. I like this a lot though and I’m surprisingly proud of it, even though I guess it’s still kinda unfinished..
I NEVER WALK DOWN NINTH ANYMORE
i already gave you the best that i got i already gave you the best that i got cuz we all know what you did to break a poor boy's heart like that.. i don't walk down ninth anymore i don't walk down ninth anymore cuz i'll end up like you or i'll end up with you.. cuz there's too much history between you and me that don't go away when you say you love me if i could have anything in this whole wide world i would watch the snow fall from the sky on you so i could brush the flakes off your bright red cheeks and hold you in my arms and wish away the moon i still keep all the letters i got do you still keep all the letters you got can you even remember what you wrote in them in such a haze cuz there's too much history between you and me that don't go away when you say you love me i don't walk down ninth anymore but we still know where you live in case i can ever work out how to forgive
