lyrics

Walking through the morning
barely anyone to watch this scene
Milk trucks of manhattan
and the winter branches tipped with green
But the season is going somewhere
spring to spring and fall to fall
He thinks he'll walk a little further
because the world awaits us all

3 o'clock and cloudy
bars are open down on Rivington street
no call no show to work today
wonder if his girl can get something to eat
well that job just took the breath from him
and the paycheck never sat too tall
he wants to give that girl the best he's got
because the world awaits us all

Through the afternoon sitting on the steps drinking coffee
such a fine thing having someone there when you call
where do you want to be? sleeping on some beach in tahiti?
Well you never know baby cause the world awaits us all.

Sun sets over Chelsea
It's been so long since he has seen it here.
Red light on the backs of strangers
that he follows while he's walking near.
And it all seems so familiar
like some hanging apple bound to fall
but he's looking out for something else,
Because the world awaits us all.

Standing on the beach watching all the waves where they are crashing
throwing every shell, shipwreck-hell, and cannonball
back against the sand, grind them into sand where we are walking.
Come on stick with me, because the world awaits us all

Shovel in the morning
Barely anyone to watch this scene.
Fresh dirt by the grave site
and the winter branches clipped so clean
you can go and think of Lazarus. Think of Hamlet, think of Tom T. Hall
Because the world will wait for no man.
and the world awaits us all.
