 Ben Folds

Silver Street (Live)

 

Recorded live at:

Clutch Cargo's

Pontiac Michigan

6/25/02

 

Now the houses are ghost over Silver Street

you've got them dressed up like clowns

married couples slamming doors

bums praising the lord

your playing tapes for the town

 

well the neighborhoods next

and your college friends

are getting younger every year

 

the wind don't blow

and the grass don't grow

your never leaving Silver Street

 

You bought some brown wire frames at a junkshop

that was your trademark at school

now the're barely hanging on

and the styles are moving on

hard for a man to stay cool

 

now the seasons change

and the storefronts change

everything else stays the same

 

the wind don't blow

and the grass don't grow

your never leaving Silver Street

 

Now don't get me wrong

cause, oh-o, woah - I

like this neighborhood

and, now, seeing you was good

but we spent the day

so completely uninspired

asking why oh why would I be tired?

 

the're filling the potholes in on Silver Street

waking the neighbors up at noon

and your friends are out on break

and your out on your brown lawn

raking the dirt with a broom

 

now the seasons change

and the storefronts change

everything else stays the same

 

the wind don't blow

and the grass don't grow

your never leaving Silver Street

 

 

never leaving

never leaving

never leaving

never leaving

oh oh oh oh
