ludlow street lyrics – suzanne vega

love is the only thing that matters.
love is the only thing that’s real.
i know we hear this every day.
it’s still the hardest thing to feel.

this time
when i go back to ludlow street,
i find each stoop and doorway’s incomplete,
without you there.

another generation’s parties.
and it is still the same old scene.
i can recall each morning after.
painted in nicotene.

this time
when i go back to ludlow street,
i find each stoop and doorway’s incomplete
without you there.

all of the people i once knew.
all of the ones i was close to.

love is the only thing that matters.
love the only thing that’s real,
and when i think about you now
love is the only thing i feel.

this time
when i go back to ludlow street,
i find each stoop and doorway’s incomplete
without you there.

tim, this time
when i go back to ludlow street
i find each stoop and doorway’s incomplete
without you there.
