Across the park from us is a one-block street named Four and a Half Street. I was imagining a song about it when my friend was thinking about leaving her husband to move here. That never happened, but the song did, under sadder circumstances.

Story behind the song
Making your way to Four and a Half Street was about the only line that came to me some years back when I thought of a friend who was talking about moving to Roanoke to escape Lake Tahoe and a husband who was obsessed with another woman. The rest came to me as a fantasy some time after she died of complications from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Lyrics
Endless snow Nowhere to go and Skies dont seem to get much clearer You couldnt Throw him out But dream about Tahoe in the rear-view mirror A railway ticket Is yours for the taking Drop all the pieces Theyll only keep breaking Till youre Making your way to FOUR AND A HALF STREET Thats all you needed Mission completed Some other day on FOUR AND A HALF STREET Well work out the detail Part-time in retail Or counseling over the phone You could put the chairs right here We know the people To lead you to your next career The door frame creaks The ceiling leaks The stovepipe barely vents the fire But does he care? Hes never there Out crushing on some girl from choir A whole new future Is yours for the charting Pack one bag Youll soon be departing And be Starting anew at FOUR AND A HALF STREET No longer an island Were right across Highland And youre Loving the view from FOUR AND A HALF STREET Blueberries blooming Hummingbirds zooming A deck that you can call your own You could put the chairs right here The neighbors will be dropping by later With some housewarming cheer The Franklin Mint Monopoly You begged me to send Now decorates your mantelpiece They knocked a hundred off of your lease And you didnt die Last July
