Jesse Ruben – Bleecker and 6th

I realized this song is talking about the very spot in New York where CBGB's once was. How sad :-(






LYRICS:

She's scouring galleries,
Counting her calories
Saving her salary too
She's soft and outspoken,
But feels like she's broken
And hoping that she will improve
Cause she's been so deceived
And she thinks that she needs to be fixed
She's in love with a man that she met
Down on Bleecker and Sixth

He's more than her neighbor
She likes his behavior
And think he can save her for real
And it's not asking much
From a man she can trust
That offers to pay for the meal
And she needs him to call
And she's pounding the wall with her fist
She's in love with a man that she met
Down on Bleecker and Sixth

And this city is scary when
No one is there to share it with.
And if anything's wrong
She needs someone strong to
Take care of it
She wants to take care of him.

He's out for a walk
As he fought with his boss
Over losses that didn't make sense
It's late afternoon in the middle of June
And she's reading a book on a bench
So he sits down beside her and smiles
And then he says this
'Well I think you're the woman
I met down on Bleecker and Sixth'

And this city is scary when
No one is there to share it with.
And if anything's wrong
She needs someone strong to
Take care of it
She wants to take care of it

At first they were shy and a little bit quiet
But they stayed awake until dawn
And as the day passed they both realized it last
It found what they backed all along
So he takes a deep breath
Puts his hand on her neck
And they kissed
And this isn't a shock
Cause this story does not have a twist
They're in love and they live in a loft
Down on Bleecker and Sixth
