In The Neighborhood
© 1995 Mark Allen

Rearrange the furniture, getting used to living by myself
Putting down a welcome mat, placing the past on the shelf
This is not a house, but a permanent home
This is my heart, and I want it to be known

CHORUS
That I am in the neighborhood, a new state of mind
Itís been a rocky road, and itís been an up-hill climb
Gaining ground, and settling down with my soul in bloom
Even though Iíll spend another lonely night in my room
Tomorrowís looking fair to pretty good
In the neighborhood

Living life is wonderful, when youíre with the one that you love so
Itís hard to heal a broken heart, when they decide itís time to go
Memories disappear, and the healing begins
Iíve traveled that road, time and time again

CHORUS
That I am in the neighborhood, a new state of mind
Itís been a rocky road, and itís been an up-hill climb
Gaining ground, and settling down with my soul in bloom
Even though Iíll spend another lonely night in my room
Tomorrowís looking fair to pretty good
In the neighborhood

BRIDGE
Open up the blinds so I can see the morning sun
What I left behind does not compare with whatís begun
My bag of broken dreams and dead ends have led me to
My present relocation on this avenue

CHORUS
That I am in the neighborhood, a new state of mind
Itís been a rocky road, and itís been an up-hill climb
Gaining ground, and settling down with my soul in bloom
Even though Iíll spend another lonely night in my room
Tomorrowís looking fair to pretty good
In the neighborhood
