download mp3 Nickel Creek - Brand New Sidewalk

I do not own any rights to this song or image.


Five years ago, you pressed your hand into a brand new sidewalk.
It's well worn now, and though some tried, yours is the only print there.
You might not have meant to, but
It's done you can't take it out.
You're shy about what fortune lent you.
Is that what this is about?
Smile while you can 'cause when they find you're not amused,
not really, they'll rob you blind of what they gave.
Yes you gave them that power.
You might not have meant to, but
It's done now you can't take it back.
You cry about what fame sent you
without a plan of attack.
Five years ago,
I warned you, dear,
As a concerned admirer.
You never knew, you never heard.
The veil was still in place
Thank god you hate to listen,
'Cause I would not be here
Lifting the veil to kiss you,
Next to a brand new sidewalk.
