Optimist Lyrics by David Byrne


David Byrne Lyrics

Optimist Lyrics
Waiting - but I don't mind
I'm all bus stops and heat
I'm neon - in your daylight

I'm the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

I got anything but moneyed esteem
Drinks on Conde Nast
I'm the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

I spy Vivian Girls on the Up, Upper East
There's no reason to be upset
There's no reason to not expect

There's no room for emptiness
No tea or sympathy
There's no room for emptiness
On a never empty street
