“Spring Street” by Vanessa Carlton Lyrics

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na

I was heading down to Spring Street
With a suitcase in my hand
And filled with love and life and grand delusions
I knew you’d understand

When 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

Na na na na na na na
(And she said)
Na na na na na na na
(And walk on)
Na na na na na na na
(You’re alright)
Na na na na na na na

And I found myself a new life
And I’ve been living with some friends
And we hold on to dreams and live like kings
Like the days will never end

And 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

Na na na na na na na
(And he said)
Na na na na na na na
(We?ll walk on)
Na na na na na na na
(You’re alright)
Na na na na na na na

And everything changes
And friends become strangers
And 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

Na na na na na na na
(And walk on)
Na na na na na na na
(And we sing)
Na na na na na na na
(You’re alright)
Na na na na na na na

And I moved out of the city
To start a family of my own
And when I look into my daughter’s eyes
And I don’t feel so alone
And as I walk her down to Spring Street
And she holds onto my hand
Mother, you knew my eyes would be wet with tears
And now I understand

Na na na
Na na na na na na na
(And I said)
Na na na na na na na
(Walk on)
Na na na na na na na
(And thank you)
Na na na na na na na

And walk on
We’re alright
And hold on
Na na na na na na na
