Streets of Love Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (7)



You're awful bright, you're awful smart
I must admit you broke my heart
The awful truth is really sad
I must admit I was awful bad

While lovers laugh and music plays
I stumble by and I hide my pain
The lamps are lit the moon is gone
I think I've crossed the Rubicon

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
And they're full of tears
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
And they are full of fears

While music pumps from passing cars
A couple watched me from a bar
sponsored links
A band just played the wedding march
and the cornerstore mends broken hearts
A woman asked me for a dance
Oh, It's free of charge just one more chance

Oh I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
And they are full of tears
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
For a thousand years

You had the moves, you had the cards
I must admit you were awful smart
The awful truth is awful sad
I must admit I was awful bad

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
I walked the streets of love
for a thousand years

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
I walked the streets of love
and they're drenched with tears
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
For a thousand years

To Meeja Ireland: Obviously, you studied long and hard to muster up a critique of this song while the rest of us can appreciate and understand that it has and should be interpreted a million different ways.....which of course, was the writers intention. I suspect you should find a much different forum for your "hobby"? -Dan



different p.o.v | Reviewer: v | 8/7/10

meeja, i think you are looking at the song from a very rational p.o.v while the others are basing their appreciation on their ability to relate to the feelings that come with the lyrics. People who have felt both the intensity of love, both the joy and deprivation it can bring, can truly understand the metaphors. they don't understand them with their heads, they do so with their hearts. I know the lonely street of love which he walks for a thousand years. It makes perfect sense. And the simplicity is what makes it so relatable, and not snobbish. you probably have a higher education and i respect that, you are looking for something meatier in terms of the words and imagery or concepts explored. but remember, the simple songs are the best.



Transcends the genre? Really? | Reviewer: Meeja Ireland | 6/4/10

The awful truth is awful sad
I must admit I was awful bad

This is a typical late Stones song in many ways. Some beautiful singing, a fine melody and a great arrangement, all destroyed by Jagger's appalling, puerile lyrics. It's hard to know what to despair most at. The childish jingling above might (just) work as naive simplicity, but not while we are still choking on that clunky "Rubicon" reference.

And the cornerstore mends broken hearts, does it? What did that even think it meant?

This is a Eurovision lyric, from someone who learned English as a fourth language from a Roxette album. Why won't Jagger aim higher?



Something else... | Reviewer: Tezza | 4/29/10

This Stones song transcends the love-song genre,with its all knowing lyric and like Pink Floyd...the Glimmer Twins have made this particular lyric 'speak' to the individual in a myriad of possibilities.... it bestrides the attempts of the 'moon in June brigade'...you know who you are...!,..like a colossus.



eternal longing for love | Reviewer: archisman dash | 8/5/09

an amazing song..immediately makes the listeners relate to the bittersweet feeling of love..there will be endless heartbreaks yet we never give in....there must be a million lovers..who are in love with their best friends,..but try their best to hide their feelings..for the sake of their friendship.love you vishu!



Learning to Love | Reviewer: TPG | 1/19/08

Makes me think of the time needed to love. Walking the streets of love can teach one how to love, yet one may never be ready. Even through a thousand years of walking, love may just not exist. Is everyone meant to love someone else for life as their wife?.... I don't believe so.

This is a wonderful song, and a really great tribute to the eternal flame of love describing a phantastic phenomenon among and in people;
