about

The 60s called... They want their sound back. I wrote this for a class for my masters degree at Purchase.

lyrics

In a town where everybody's always sleeping
On a street without a light
See him walking in the rain after midnight
Keep your head down, son,
And walk on by.

You must excuse him if he stumbles;
It ain't the whiskey or the rye -
It's just a broken heart that's got him reeling.
Keep your head down, son,
And walk on by.

Once he loved a rich man's lonely daughter;
She had a sad but lovely smile,
And he would have died to be
The one that she
Came home to,
But keeping him around
Never crossed her mind.

He's got a million things he'd like to tell her,
But after a thousand sleepless nights
He's got a hundred unsent letters, and no postage...
Keep your head down, son,
And walk on by.

Keep your head down, son,
And walk on by.
