Lyrics

Telegraph Avenue
America I’ve tried so hard to find you
Out on the shores of the sea
Waiting for the tide to be right so your ship could come into harbor
Young and reckless and unafraid

But it’s only darkness ….tonight….on Telegraph Avenue

America I read the words you wrote me
In the letters of Kerouac and Cassady
Went to find those City Lights and see that you were still alive
When all the poets have gone and died

In this darkness ….. tonight….. on Telegraph Avenue

Put an ear against the pavement, searched all the subway stations
Push through a crowd of faces, map out the sacred places
Shout out your favorite phrases, count down the time you've wasted
These turns your life’s been taking, you know you were always racing

Towards this darkness …tonight….


America I’ve tried so hard to find you, America I’ve tried so hard to see
America I’ve tried so hard to find you, America I’ve tried so hard to see

Through this darkness…tonight…
It’s only darkness …tonight…. On Telegraph Avenue
