When the meltdown came I was back in Arizona, in Tempe of all places, back in graduate school. I would sit in my apartment kitchen and do homework and through the radio I heard it all crashing -thanks especially to questionable loans issued to buy houses in the very sunbelt boom town I found myself in.


Maybe we’ll finally find what we need
Maybe this gimcrack American dream
Isn’t what it used to be

someday kids will play in the street
lions they will lie down and sleep before
Before they eat someone again

I want the ground solid under my feet
I want you very near to me
When it all comes down

I dreamt of people down on their luck
Empty windows and empty lots
Staring back at me

Wake up, my little sunshine,
Everything we had is gone

I think it’s gone for good

Sometimes too much is just too much
Every day it rains new stuff and
Every day is bargain day

Then you wake up down in the hole
Wishing just don’t make it so
And it don’t pay the bills

Now the half-empty neighborhoods sigh
Underneath the unrelenting skies
of lost opportunity

wake up, my little sunshine
everything we had is gone

I think it's gone for good
