NEEMA LYRICS

Sidewalk

the sidewalk’s cracked, the streets are old
these structures cannot last
we’re clinging on to a world
that’s already of the past

i know you tried to follow me
you kept up really well
but now i’ve finally come to see
i couldn’t keep up with myself

forgive me if you can
i’ll try to do the same
i’ve somehow come to understand
that noone is to blame

you cared for me when i was sick
like a mother for her child
i never meant to leave you there
my heart went running wild

i tried to walk away from you
the traffic lights were red
i couldn’t get myself to go
so i made you leave instead

forgive me if you can
i’ll try to do the same
i’ve somehow come to understand
that noone is to blame

i can’t forget that oath we made
as we jumped into the sea
baptized each other with new names
like we’d always be so free

and i won’t forget that home we built
our lovely sacred place
and all the miles that you drove
so that we could keep pace

i was walking down the alley
there were boxes everywhere
i looked inside but all i found
were spools of damaged hair

they took me to the ganges
on the boat at sunrise
to the offering i made that day
to all we’ve left behind

forgive me if you can
i’ll try to do the same
i’ve somehow come to understand
that noone is to blame

the sidewalk’s cracked, the streets are old
these structures cannot last
we’re clinging on to a world
that’s already of the past
