Waiting, but I don't mind
I'm all bus stops and heat
I'm neon in your daylight
I'm the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

I got anything but moneyed esteem
Drinks on Condè Nast
I'm the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

I spy Vivian Girls on the Up, Upper East
There's no reason to be upset
There's no reason to not expect
There's no room for emptiness
No tea or sympathy
No room for emptiness on a Never Empty Street
