Brand New Lease

(Kirsten Williams)

Brand New Lease

In the same old apt on the Lower East Side I've got a brand new lease on love

And I've drowned out the sirens and the warning cries that used to keep me up

I sleep well these days, I sleep well these days, I sleep well, I've got a brand new lease on love

 

I used to toss and turn and twist myself in a knot just trying to get away from my pain

But he came calmly along and softly smoothed me out and made me want to try to love again

I sleep well these days, I sleep well these days, I sleep well, I've got a brand new lease on love

 

And in a City this size, I never thought I'd find such a sense of peace

 

I keep my windows wide that open on to the street to hear all the passersby

I'm still drifting off with him in my dreams as soon as I shut my eyes

I sleep well these days, I sleep well these days, I sleep well, I've got a brand new lease on love
