Lyrics
Every time I see that street, I think of you
And I think of the mornings
And your long red hair
You're rolling out of bed
Though you rather stay right there
But your housemates are up
And there's so much to do
Every time I see that street, I think of you

And I think of the afternoons
Lost together in thought
Long walks in the park
All the answers we sought
With a mind and heart
Of the wonderous few
Every time I see that street, I think of you

And I think of the evenings
All the stories you told
Out driving your cab
Barely twenty years old
But with such ancient eyes
Oh the wisdom you knew
Every time I see that street, I think of you

And I remember that night
The tequila we drank
Laughing for hours
With a world to thank
And you told me you loved me
And I said, "Eric, I love you, too"
Every time I see that street, I think of you

And I think of the wee hours
Long before dawn
Determined to wander
'Til the darkness was gone
San Francisco at night
And the warm summer breeze
Walking back alleys
Just as free as you please
And I think of those poor boys
Who drove up to say
"Give us your money"
And then they blew you away
With one pull of a trigger
Your sweet life was through
Every time I see that street, I think of you
