  • Lyrics: The rain soaks through to skin The cars swim by while you’re waiting for the line of them to end And the blocks stretch on for miles You’ve already seen a million faces but not one of them could smile Keep waiting for the train This platform has more excuses than a man who’s gone insane This cross-town could be your end Motionless, you breathe and it’s not yet 8 am Brooklyn You’re not alone The bricks fall off like snow A place were someone spent their life makes way for her to grow The skyline is burning up The promises past these dirty banks seem to have all but given up All the lights seem far away Fireworks exploding make you forget what you had to say And at once the world is still Hushing sirens rushing past cut through another morning chill Brooklyn You’re not alone
