Sirens ring, the shots ring out
A stranger cries, screams out loud
I had my world strapped against my back
I held my hands, never knew how to act

And the same black line that was drawn on you
Was drawn on me
And now it's drawn me in
6th Avenue heartache
 Below me was a homeless man
I'm singin' songs I knew complete On the steps alone, his guitar in hand
It's fifty years, stood where he stands 
Now walkin' home on those streets
The river winds move my feet Subway steam, like silhouettes in dreams They stood by me, just like moonbeams 
Look out the window, down upon that street And gone like a midnight was that man
But I see his six strings laid against that wall
And all his things, they all look so small 
I got my fingers crossed on a shooting star
Just like me just moved on
