Reviews
One of the standouts of Tim Buckley's excellent sophomore album, Goodbye and Hello, "Pleasant Street" is one of the songs from the dated mid-1967 period that still sounds fresh today. Utilizing a fabulous, descending melody, the song's melody is truly enrapturing. Lyrically, it's also one of the finest psychedelic "ballads" of the day and remains one of the best evocations of a paranoid/ecstatic LSD experience. An exquisite arrangement by Jerry Yester should also be noted here, and the involved, multi-layered production is one of the finest of the period.

You don't remember what to say
You don't remember what to do
You don't remember where to go
You don't remember what to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel
down, Down, down, down

All the stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

The sunshine reminds you of concreted skies
You thought you were flying but you opened your eyes
And you found yourself falling back to yesterday's lies
Hello, Pleasant Street,
you know she's back again
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel
down. Down, down, down

All the stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

At twilight your lover comes to room
He'll spin you, he'll weave you, 'round his emerald loom
And softly, you'll whisper all around his ear
"Sweet lover, I love Pleasant Street
I wheel, I steal, I feel, my way down to kneel"
Down, down, down

All the stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

You don't remember what to say
You don't remember what to do
You don't remember which way to go
You don't remember what to choose
