I'll take the alleyway today
No need for streets
They just compete with other people
Walking side by side on sidewalks
With their clocks all ticking simultaneously

That's where I'll be
Stick to the alleyway with me

There is a way
Another way to go and I'll take it
A secret way
Some people know about but know one ever sees

You will find it if your heart is open
And I'm hoping it will lead you straight to me

Fast or slow
Take the shortcuts and side roads
Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
We'll get there our way

I'll take the train tracks there
The ones that run behind the houses down on Pine Street
Traveling side by side like lovers
Never crossing one another so to speak

And I would walk these tracks forever
Even if the weather doesn't change in weeks

And though we were deserving long ago it doesn't hurt to notice I'm free

Fast or slow
Take the shortcuts and side roads
Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
We'll get there our way

Fast or slow
Take the shortcuts and side roads
Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
We'll get there our way
