Williamsburg, lyric by 5 Chinese Brothers

from the songs album Singer, Songwriter, Beggarman, Thief

Tom meltzer

There's a cold rain pouring off the williamsburg bridge
The world's giving way beneath my feet
Someone once said that you're lucky when you're dead
You know sometimes i agree

They're sweeping hot bottle caps onto the street
There's a boy about 16 staring down
With a sick little smile just to prove he's alive
As he looks around for nothing on the ground

Once his life was a prison but it burst at the seams
When he found a way to leave his dreams behind
Now he lives in a mist he hopes will leave him so numb
That he'll die without a worry on his mind


I was walking through williamsburg, taking it in
Trying to keep the courage not to run
When a boy left a bodega and he stepped in my path
In his right hand was a gun

He said, "give me your money and i'll leave you alive"
And he shook and looked discouraged while he talked
And i tried not to watch him as he walked away
But i noticed a spring in his walk


You only get one chance at everything on this earth
And everything you do you must redeem
It's a hard sad life most people'd rather throw away
On drinks and drugs and idle dreams

I was sitting in my bedroom staring at an empty fifth
The night was disappearing from my head
When i had a funny thought and i started to laugh
'cause i remembered what somebody said
