Best of Many Days

Miracles happen on Saint Marks Place

Up on the roof holding hands

It only takes a moment standing in grace

Who knows then what the Gods have planned

Hey, hey, hey, yay, yay, that was the summer

Hey, hey, hey, yay,yay, that was the summer

It was

Dancin’ on the corner to Patti Smith

It was hot and it was rarely dry

Loud and smoky and smelling of risk

Saw the Ramones that night and we cried

Hey, hey, hey, yay, yay, that was the summer

Hey, hey, hey, yay, yay, that was the summer

Living life large on the lower east side

Waking up the fires deep inside

Two hearts burning like a live wire

Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

Miracles happen on Saint Marks Place

Down on the street the world moves on

Those were the best of the many days

Among so many forgotten and gone

Hey, hey, hey, yay, yay, that was the summer

Hey, hey, hey, yay, yay, that was the summer

It was
