When you’re alone, and life is making you lonely
You can always go
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re
Downtown, no finer place for sure
Downtown everything’s waiting for youDowntownDon’t hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You’ll be…Source: LyricFind
When I was a teenager I would walk all over the city. When I moved here I use to walk uptown, downtown to do my shopping. I would sometimes go downtown with little or no money just to get out of the house. I found that even without much money window shopping can be uplifting, I thought nothing of it, if it was groceries I would call for a taxi to go home. I found these trips great exercise, and also, spirit lifting.
I am no longer able to do those type of jaunts. I miss them.
The song above was a popular song when I was young but the words say alot. One line of the song says exactly the point I am trying to bring across.
“Don’t hang around and let your problems surround you…”
To borrow something my best friend says to me every once in awhile;
“Get outside and get the stink off you!”
