Fairfield Avenue (Paul OíBrien)

 

You took me walking

Down our ĎAvenueí

And we talked about the houses

And the people that we knew

And playing kick the can

ĎTill long after dark

And Mister Vincent

And our own private park

 

Iím glad you took the time

Iím glad I went along

Iím glad that I could make you cry

With the words of a song

 

You filled me in on all the things

That have happend in ĎOur GangísĒ lives

How some have dissappeared

And some ar friends for life

You said you hated changes

But thatís the way it is

And Iím sure that things were changing

Even when we were kids

 

How the freight trains

Made way for the Dart

And when they shut the lanes off

How it broke your heart

 

And as we walked along

Nearly hand in hand

Both ofus thinking about

The lives we had planned

And how things they turned

And how our lives had changed

But Angie, so many things

Really are the same

 

Iím glad you took the time

Iím glad I went along

Iím glad that I could make you cry

With the words of a song

 

Iím glad you took the time

Iím glad I went along

Iím glad that I could make you cry

With the words of a two minute, thirty second song
