He sleeps all alone on Second Street
With a roof over his head and food to eat
But he can hardly make it day to day 'cause
Everything he wants is six blocks away, six blocks away

He's got a regular job and it pays the rent
In a donut shop on third and tenth
But he doesn't understand why she turned him away
He can hear her heart beat six blocks away, six blocks away

Six blocks away dirty old street
Six blocks away he can hear her heart beat
Six blocks away dirty old street
Six blocks away he can hear her heart beat, six blocks away

He walks real fast down the dirty street
He turns his eyes from the people he meets
It hurts so bad what can he say
He sends her a message six blocks away, six blocks away

Six blocks away dirty old street
Six blocks away he can hear her heart beat
Six blocks away dirty old street
Six blocks away he can hear her heart beat, six blocks away

Six blocks away
Six blocks away
