Adam Duritz – The Dark End of The Street

It’s weird to get a Valentine’s Day song posted by Adam Duritz, the Counting Crows singer/frontman who is as well known for his terrible relationships as he is for his music. But then again, when Chips Moman and Dan Penn  first penned (pun intended) this tune for James Carr, it was part of their goal of “always wanting to come up with the best cheatin’ song. Ever.

And while the vocals are raw, and the recording isn’t the best. But somehow, that makes it sound even better to me.

So from Adam Duritz to you, here’s a nice anti-Valentine. Stream the track below, or download it from Adam’s Soundcloud page.

Adam Duritz – The Dark End of The Street

At the dark end of the street
that is where we always meet
hiding in shadows where we don’t belong
living in darkness, to hide alone

You and me, at the dark end of the street
You and me

I know a time has gonna take it’s toll
we have to pay for the love we stole
It’s a sin and we know it’s wrong
Oh, our love keeps going on strong

Steal away to the dark end of the street
You and me

They gonna find us, they gonna find us
They gonna find us love someday

You and me, at the dark end of the street
You and me

When the daylight all goes around
And by chance we’re both down the town
Please meet, just walk, walk on by
Oh, darling, please don’t you cry

You and me, at the dark end of the street
You and me
