22nd Street Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You see me walking in the streets at night
Just following the sound of my lonely feet
I'm relinquishing of all control
My mind's in tactical retreat
Verse 2
I doubt you even live here still
But it quickens up the pace of my heartbeat
When I find myself by accident
On 22nd Street
Verse 3
All the years, since bittersweet
Are chapters in a story book
That still is incomplete
The falling leaves will tumble to defeat
But nothing's ever changed round here
On 22nd Street
Verse 4
Every time I'm at the spot I remember
22nd was the place I met the girl of dreams
A bright sunny day in November
Such a beautiful sight staring right back at me
Verse 5
To get yuh body was my goal
But yuh fit perfectly inna di wifey roll
Yuh have mi unda control
On 22nd Street weh yuh capture mi heart and soul
Verse 6
I have a dream that I can't shake
A dream where lonely lovers meet
On the corner of the avenue
And 22nd Street
Verse 7
The street musicians start to play
Their violins so sweet
We can't help ourselves but dance
These steps we must complete
Verse 8
All the years, since bittersweet
Are chapters in a fairy tale
That still lies incomplete
The falling leaves are destined to repeat
That nothing's ever changed round here
On 22nd Street
Verse 9
Well any time I walk the spot I remember
22nd was the place I met the girl of dreams
A bright sunny day in November
Such a beautiful sight staring right back at me
Verse 10
I couldn't leave you alone
Something inside told me I'm gonna make you my own
I had you locked in my zone
You are the queen of my life and the heir to my throne
Verse 11
All the years, since bittersweet
Are chapters in a fairy tale
That still lies incomplete
The falling leaves will tumble to defeat
I find myself alone again
On 22nd Street
On 22nd Street
Verse 12
22nd Street
22nd Street
