    chestnut park on saturday night

    mystical boys feeling alright

    raggedy wisdom falls from our hands

    ladies of cambridge know who i am

    i've had dreams of boston all of my life

    chinatown between the sound of the night

    but if you leave i just dont think i could take it

    graveyard bricks will fall into style

    lady as pharaoh, charles as the nile

    that’s a museum price you could pay

    stones of your father stand there today

    cause when you left my room

    to go to the kitchen

    i imagined

    that you were dead

    a morbid streak

    runs through

    the whole

    of my family

    but for you

    i could put it

    to rest

    but if you leave i just don’t think i could take it
