When the Street Grow Cold

Music and Lyrics by Ren Michael

How do you sing when rain falls down?
Keep so warm when the street grow cold?
How do you laugh as thunder pounds,
As you lie out your hand for me to hold?

‘Neath the candlelight of an evening sky
You exhale your stares and you whisper a prayer.
You smile wide and you close your eyes,
You kiss the beads of a benevolent Mary

Do you carry roses for the fallen rain?
Do you glide like a ghost ‘neath the evening trees?
Do you sing songs when grey skies remain?
Are those the eyes of an angel looking at me?

I can be there for you when you stay with me.
I’ll dance you a tune as summer fades to fall.
Tonight the city’s our home, these windy streets,
As you hold the tears of the angles in your palm,
As you lie out your hand for me to hold,
And keep me warm on these streets that are so cold.
