18th Avenue (Kansas City Nightmare)

18th Avenue (Kansas City Nightmare)

Cat Stevens

Well I rode a while, for a mile or so
Down the road to the eighteenth avenue
And the people I saw were the people I know
And they all came down to take a view

Oh the path was dark and border less
Down the road to the eighteenth avenue
And it stung my tongue to repeat the words
That I used to use only yesterday

Meanings just dropped to the ground
I tried to remember what I thought
And what I used to say
Don't let me go down no don't let me go

Oh my hands were tied as I struggled inside
The empty waste of another day
Memories were blank to my eyes
The fire and the glory of that night

Seemed safely locked away
Too hungry to rise. too hungry to

Well I rode a while, for a mile or so
Down the road to the eighteenth avenue
And the people I saw were the people I know
And they all came down to take a view

Oh the path was dark and border less
Down the road to the eighteenth avenue
But my head felt better as I turned the car
And the airport slowly came to view

One mile said the sign
Checked my bags and made it straight to end gate 22
Made it just in time, boy you've made it just in time
