Sirens ring, shots ring out
A stranger cries, and screams out loud
I had my world strapped against my back
I held my hands, never knew how to act

And that same black line that was drawn on you
It was drawn on me
And now it's drawn me in....sixth avenue heartache

Below me was a homeless man
I'm singin songs I knew complete
On the steps alone, his guitar in hand
It's fifty years, stood where he stands

Now walkin home on those streets
The river wind moves my feet
Subway steam, like silhouettesin dreams
They stood by me just like moonbeams

Look out the windowdown upon that street
And gone like a midnight was that man
But I see his six stringlaid against that wall
And all those things, they looked so small
I've got my fingers crossedon a shooting star
Just like me, just moved on
