Brooklyn Road Lyrics

Artist: Neil Diamond

Brooklyn Road
Neil Diamond

If I close my eyes
I can almost hear my mother
Callin', "Neil, go find your brother
Daddy's home, and it's time for supper
Hurry on"

And I see two boys
Racin' up two flights of staircase
Squirmin' into Papa's embrace
And his whiskers warm on their face
Where's it gone
Oh, where's it gone

Two floors above the butcher
First door on the right
Life filled to the brim
As I stood by my window
And I looked out of those
Brooklyn roads

I can still recall
The smells of cookin' in the hallways
Rubbers drying in the doorways
And report cards I was always
Afraid to show

Mama'd come to school
And as I'd sit there softly crying
Teacher'd say, "He's just not trying
He's got a good head if he'd apply it"
But you know yourself
It's always somewhere else

I built me a castle
With dragons and kings
And I'd ride off with them
As I stood by my window
And looked out on those
Brooklyn roads

Thought of going back
But all I'd see are stranger's faces
And all the scars that love erases
But as my mind walks through thoses places
I'm wonderin'
What's come of them

Does some other young boy
Come home to my room
Does he dream what I did
As he stands by my window
And looks out on those
Brooklyn roads

A STRONG ATTACHMENT WITH BROOKLYN ROADS. REMINISCING EVENTS WHICH
WERE UNFOLDED WHILE STANDING BY
THE WINDOW.

This is one of his finest songs that
we never seem to hear enough. As far as songwriting goes, i think it's near perfect, at least, for me.There's so much feeling thru out this song. Makes me recapture my own childhood.
