lyrics

I hear gunshots in the distance
and an ambulance tear by
the upstairs neighbors fight again
sometime after midnight

and the radiator rattles
the wood floor moans
i know not who i was
i know not where i'll go...

the other name coming off the lease
left eggshells and a mess,
a cheap dining room table
and a former lover's dress
everybody else moved on
now i've no one to part with
and i inhabit all of this two bedroom apartment

David got divorced and Cindy moved away
to chase a better payin' job and lives somewhere upstate
oh, the Boulevard is empty
the traffic lights glow
my pockets are light
somehow i've got to go

the other name coming off the lease
left no forward address, all the bills still comin'
i had no choice but acquiesce
everybody else moved on
now i've no one to part with
and i inhabit all of this two bedroom apartment...

everybody else moved on...
