Bold Street

This song is by Eugene McGuinness and appears on the EP The Early Learnings of Eugene McGuinness (2007).

Black cap, snapping at the heels of the ladies
Rushing, windswept hair and scarves waving
Big Issue man threw a salvation by a penny
Please give what you can
A penny if you have any

Coffee aromas, swimming past the fruit stand
Trag (?) at the corner in a pink polka-dot headband
Schoolboys are mean, but who knows what they're hiding
Time washes clean the masks in which we cry in

Oh, will I be lost in twilight near Bold
Oh, me oh my
I always find myself on this road

A fake American diner plays me Mr. Mustard
But Orpheus is really an old accordion busker
The Mayor recites a Shakespearean sonnet
Saturday night, both feet caked in its own vomit

Burberry check, curbside sex and police cars
She cuts through the chaos, through the canvas like a shooting star
All slow motion now, can't quite believe my black eye
This dark angel landed and obviously missed a war cry

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Like a diamond in the sky
Will I work it out alive

Oh, will I be lost in twilight near Bold
Oh, me oh my
I always find myself on this road

Oh, will I be lost in twilight near Bold
Oh, me oh my
I always find myself on this road
