Bayless St.

  • written by Rickie Lee Jones and David Kalish


    There’s a house at Bayless Street
    I left when I was tired,
    There’s a dog in a backyard
    He watches the moon for me.

    Lay down
    All these easy times
    And we’ll
    Meet me there
    With the book you brought from
    Bayless Street

    A child on Bayless Street
    Left there by myself,
    And she’s waiting there to meet
    All the people we’ve become.
    Meet me now,
    I will bring my friend.

    Lay down
    All these easy times
    And we’ll
    Meet me now,
    I will bring my friend.
    There’s a house on Bayless Street
    Where restless children sleep.
