The end came quickly can’t say I remember it
Now, the quiet man sits contentedly at the window sill
He can’t teach the dogs to change the channel
He reads late at night by use of solar panel
Peace and quiet swept him off his feet
No one making love on Resolution Street.
Into the spaces between spaces
The thieves have left the dishes
And now, Jack the ripper sits on the barbed wire fence
Where he sees there are no rules just consequence.
No need to give directions to anyone you meet
No one takes a back seat on Resolution Street
The whole town is sick and tired of the war
The English patient committed original sin
But Dr Zhivago has gone with the wind
Adam and Eve chase the businessmen
Forecasting whatever happened in the past
There is no overtaking on Resolution Street.
Nearer my God to thee
The mourners have all gone to sleep
Yuppies are at play on the lawn
And at last the Snowman has earned his keep
While Tom and Viv choose to live
Together, slightly apart
Without chemistry or humidity
On Resolution Street.
