Down in a local bar
Out on the boulevard
The sound of an old guitar
Is saving you from sinking
It’s a long way down
It’s a long way

Back like you never broke
You tell a dirty joke
He touches your leg and thinks he’s getting close
For now you let him just this once
Just for now
And just like that – it’s over

[Chorus:]
Don’t turn away
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Don’t be afraid
Keep it all inside, all inside
When you fall apart
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Life is always hard for the belle of the boulevard

In all your silver rings
And all your silken things
That song you softly sing – is keeping you from breaking
It’s a long way down
It’s a long way
Back here you never loved
You’ve shaked the shivers off
You take a drink to get your courage up
Can you believe it
Just this once
Just for now
And just like that
It’s over

[Chorus]

Please hold on – it’s alright
Please hold on – it’s alright
Please hold on

Down in a local bar
Out on the boulevard
The sound of an old guitar
Is saving you

[Chorus x2]

From Wikipedia :

"Belle of the Boulevard" talks about a girl, whom the singer-composer considers as one of the most beautiful women he’s known. “We lost touch and I was sad to see how far she’d fallen. I didn’t intend to write the song about her but I sat down in the piano and the chords sounded good and suddenly there was a song there.” “Funny thing is I saw her the other day and she doesn’t know I’ve written this song about her. I can’t tell her. She’s heard the song. I hope it did make her realize it was written for her but she didn’t ask me.”
