LEFT TURN

I ride my bike around the block
On the city street and on the sidewalk
I make two left turns and then I
I turn left again

A dozen times I pedal past
And a dog watches me go nowhere fast
He waits on the stoop in the sun
For the day to be done
A girl is outside playing games
While the boy next door calls her names
They're growing up while I stay the same

I know I'm not getting anywhere this way
Going round in circles every day
I can't figure out how to go right
When the future seems so out of sight

I ride my bike around the block
On the city street and on the sidewalk
I make two left turns and then I
Turn left again

At the corner is a tree
Where you carved our names with your key
I miss you, but you don’t miss me
My spinning wheels hardly make a sound
As I cover the same old ground
I can’t get lost or found

And as I ride I sometimes feel the cool wind on my back
I’m wishing everything was right on track
Maybe I should take a different route
A new direction that gets me out

I ride my bike around the block
On the city street and on the sidewalk
I make two left turns and then I
Turn left again

I ride my bike around the block
On the city street and on the sidewalk
I make two left turns and at the light
I turn right
