Spring Street - Vanessa Carlton

I was heading down to Spring Street with a suitcase in my hand
Filled with love and life and grand illusion, I knew you'd understand
I left you by the stairwell and your eyes were wet with tears
Mother you knew you had to let me go, even after all these years

And we sing Nah, Nah-nah-nah, she said nah-nah-nah-nah walk on
nah-nah-nah-nah, you're alright nah-nah-nah-nah
And I found myself a new life, I've been living with some friends
We hold on to dreams and live like kings, like the days will never end

I left him by the statue and his eyes were filled with tears
Lover you knew you had to let me go, even after all these years
And we sing Nah, Nah-nah-nah, he said nah-nah-nah-nah walk on
nah-nah-nah-nah, you're alright nah-nah-nah-nah

Everything changes friends become strangers
What we hold so dear slips away
The past keeps on fading, but I'll never forget you
It's hard to see that you're a part of me, even when we have to say
nah-nah-nah-nah walk on, nah-nah-nah-nah we sing
nah-nah-nah-nah, well alright nah-nah-nah-nah
And I moved out of the City to start a family of my own
When I look into my daughter's eyes, I don't feel so alone
And as I walk her down to Spring Street, She holds onto my hand
Mother you knew my eyes would be wet with tears and now I understand
Nah, Nah-nah-nah, and I said nah-nah-nah-nah walk on
nah-nah-nah-nah, thank you nah-nah-nah-nah
nah-nah-nah-nah walk on, you're alright
Can't hold on
