  • Lyrics: In the middle of Oakland there’s a street called Alice who she was I don’t know She must have lived in a time when these houses were fine fresh paint and gingerbread all in a row And everytime I pass by that boarded up bookstore, the dress shop awning that’s now fallen down I think about Alice and what she might say if she could see all the trouble this street has found Alice see the fancy laid plain see the grime in the filigree Alice see the homeless in pain on that street with your sweet pedigree Be more than just a rusted name Alice be a sign of hope to me This town was built on gold dust and hope and ten thousand hard earned dreams But if those There’s a law of physics that predicts decay it says a lot about these times But people of faith can still reclaim this place in the name of the name staring down from that sign Alice see the fancy laid plain see the grime in the filigree Alice see the homeless in pain on that street with your sweet pedigree Be more than just a rusted name Alice be a sign of hope to me They must have loved you very much to give that street your name But is there love enough to bring it back again Alice see the grime in the filigree Alice on that bitter street with your sweet pedigree Be more than just a rusted name Alice be a sign of hope to me
