Wonderful folk song by Jules Renner
Artist about the track:
I wrote this song in about 15 minutes circa 2014 about 1.5 years after moving to New York City, once the excitement began to wear off. I realized that even though I was surrounded by millions of people at all times of the day, that I was still feeling lonely. This is one of, if not the, saddest songs I have written to date but it is one of my personal favorites. Think staring out the window on a train, deep in the feels.
No one looking to the left and right When crossing the street anymore Shadows walk by you No I'm not used to Not one body smiling back Smoke cloud mushrooms blow through the sky Walk past destruction without another glance by At what the fuck is this place in my mind Shadows walk with you Yes I am used to That as the only comfort I wish I knew what love was about What it feels like and what my life was without The darkness creeps closer each and every day Threatening to pull me under from the sunshine in the way
