      Victoria Street - Amo/Fathers

 

He said he’d be there for you.  He said there’d be nothing he wouldn’t do.

Now you’re by yourself. You’ve seen it through.

The whole world goes by. There’s only you. There’s only you.

Remember the day that the sun lit your way on Victoria Street.

Heaven looked down and dropped grace at your feet on Victoria Street.

Good girls don’t go where you have been. The voice in your head, it says awful things.

You feel a quickening in the air.  How can the dream inside now be out there now be out there?

Remember the day that the sun lit your way on Victoria Street.

Heaven looked down and dropped grace at your feet on Victoria Street.

Your life. Their lives. A passing streetcar rings.

You are struck by the glory of such things.

The nurse said go home to bed and rest awhile.

Then you stood up and she got your coat as if you were the child.

Someday you’ll hold one of your own

and all the details of this day will return.

Remember the day that the sun lit your way on Victoria Street.

Remember the way that you felt so unmade on Victoria Street.

Remember the day that the sun lit your way on Victoria Street.

Remember the way that you felt so unmade on Victoria Street.

On Victoria Street.  Victoria Street…

(drums by Ron Heigelsberger, everything else performed by Rick, mixed and mastered by Doug Blais)
