Written on a New York sidewalk
One thousand feet of purple chalk
Is a madmans letter to the girl who split in zero zero.
He never, ever begs for money.
Though the guys defacing public property,
The five-oh let it go,
So they too can read his tale of woe.

Dear love of mine,
Once again, I see the sun shine.
Does it still shine on you,
Sweet Miriam?
Ten years since we kissed,
But as long as I believe you still exist,
I can survive, sweet Miriam.

Though I loved and I lost and the cost was terrible,
Almost unbearable,
I feel no regret.
People pass and I guess they see me,
As being on the fringes of humanity,
Cause I work till creeping night
To get this one thing right,
My letter to you,
Sweet Miriam.
When Im done,
Youre gonna come on home.

One day I walked by and there were no words at all, just drawings of the two of them in the park, ice skating, stuff like that. Once he did kind of a flow chart showing how their affair fell apart). But mostly, its him talking to her.
,
We had it, we had it,
We had that deep connection,
Far beyond the extremes
Of physical affection.
To think you could share it with someone else,
I cant describe the hurt.
If somehow you turned into a ray of light,
Or a speck of dirt,
Or even if you were plankton
Floating in the sea,
Id know you,
I would need you near me.
Oh please, oh please, forgive my delirium,
Sweet Miriam.
Come on home.

Today,
Once more, Ill wipe it all away.
Sweet Miriam,
Come on home.
