You're awful bright, you're awful smart
I must admit you broke my heart
The awful truth, it's really sad
I must admit I was awful bad

While lovers laugh and music plays
I stumble by and I hide my pain
The lights are lit, the moon is gone
I think I've crossed the Rubicon

I walk the streets of love and they're full of tears
And I walk the streets of love and they're full of fears

While music pumps from passing cars
A couple watch me from a bar
A band just played the wedding march
And the corner store mends broken hearts

And a woman asks me for a dance
Oh it's free of charge, just one more chance

I walk the streets of love and they're full of tears
And I walk the streets of love for a thousand years

Oh tell me now
I... I walk the streets of love, yeah and they're drenched with tears
Oh

You had the moves, you had the cards
I must admit you were awful smart
The awful truth, it's awful sad
I must admit I was awful bad

And I walk the streets of love and they're drenched with tears
And I walk the streets of love for a thousand years
Oh

I walk the streets of love and they're drenched with tears
Oh... oh there's only one (...)
Oh I... yeah and they're full of tears
Oh everybody talk about it
Everybody be walking down it
Yeah but I found out.... oh yes that I...

Oh yes I do
Oh the streets of love, yeah, they're drenched with, drenched with in tears...
I... oh yeah I don't want to...
