I have often walked down this street before,But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I Several stories high.
Knowing I'm on the street where you live.
I'm standing in my drive-way looking down the street.
All is quiet on the HOT summer evening......the asphalt is HOT and there's no one to be found.
But, I remember growing up in Phoenix......on these same HOT summer evenings and our street was alive!! As kids we used to play in the street......yeah, go figure. We'd all meet out under the street light and play Kick the Can, Hide and Seek, Red Rover and all those fun games we used to entertain ourselves with. Fast forward about 55 yrs and it's not that way too much anymore. Kids just aren't out playing in the streets quite like we did. Oh yeah, every once in awhile I'll see a kid out riding their bike or playing basket ball.......but not a whole neighborhood of kids like we used to hang out with.
I guess that's why they call them the good old days!!
