​Times Square Heart

This song is by Eddie Schwartz and appears on the album Public Life (1984).

Child of a child, cross-eyed pearl
She was anybody's girl
Caught between Broadway and the world
Give her a word

Johnny the Saint has not been kissed
Fires complaints and swings his fists
Forty-second - eighth evangelist
Times Square Heart

Now I don't care who you are
From how near or how far
This place will take you from the start
There must be a thousand just like you
Cruisin' that lonely avenue
In the blue neon midnight see them glow

Daddy's sweetheart, Queen of Spades
Bachelor of Arts underpaid
She'll be your master or be your slave
Did you want a slave?

Cadillac Jack sucks his thumbs
Smacks his lips and rubs his gun
He's got something for everyone
Times Square Heart

Here you'll find the good and the bad
Here you'll find the famous and the nameless
Here you'll find life without end

Now I don't know where you've been
And I don't know where you're going
But you ain't goin' for
Times Square Heart

Times Square Heart
Times Square Heart
Room enough for everyone
Times Square Heart
Room enough for everyone
Times Square Heart
Room enough for everyone
Times Square Heart
Room enough for everyone

Like the cop on the beat whose been dead on his feet
For a year or maybe more
Yes and Jack is the one who is rubbin' his gun
As he dreams 'bout the jewelry store
And the dancer whose talent is not in her feet
But she's better off here than walkin' in the street, yeah, yeah

Another Times Square Heart
Times Square Heart
Times Square Heart
Times Square Heart
