Stopping in the city on a snowy evening,
Brown eyes dead—brown eyes dreaming of love—
but where were you?

The Q train hustles down to Union
you know that I am happy in spite of my confusion but I
I'm thinking clearer than you

Big city dreamer with a hard time understanding,
a love that couldn't last
finger on the trigger and I'm sick and tired of listening
a love that went so fast
So fast

I picked up my bag and walked up to Broadway—
a man was selling black electrical tape and I
I asked him for a piece

I taped up my ears and closed my eyes—
Never will I be another fool for a woman's lies,
or her love at least

Tongue-twisted lovers with a message quickly fleeting,
What was that you said?
Hand in my pocket and I'm changing my direction—
So much left unsaid

You took my confidence
and broke it into two,
You left me standing here
for the last time

I got on the train and went home alone,
graffiti on the walls let me know I was getting close—
You were already home

We went to the city but we lost our love,
two of us together but I came back to Brooklyn as one—
alone in the snow.
