Thought I might get a rocket ride,
When I was a child but it was a lie,
That I told myself when I needed something good,
At seventeen, had a better dream,
Now I'm thirty-three and it isn't me,
But I'd think of something better if I could.
All my friends and lovers leave me behind,
And I'm still looking for a girl,
One way or another,
I'm just hoping to find a way,
To put my feet out in the world.
Caught some grief from a falling leaf,
As she tumbled down to the dirty ground,
Said I should have put her back there if I could,
But everyone needs a better day,
And I'm trying to find me a better way,
To get from the things I do to the things I should.
All my friends and lovers leave me alone,
To try to have a little fun,
One way or another I just wish I had known,
[From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
To go out walking in the sun,
And find out if you were the one.
Does it make you wanna come a little closer now?
And did you wanna dance with me?
Did you wanna hum a little harder now?
Can you see her waiting there?
Can you see her? because I'm almost there,
Can you see her waiting there for someone like me?
All you want is a beauty queen,
Not a superstar but everybody's dream machine,
All you want is a place to lay your head,
You go to sleep dreaming how you would,
Be a different kind if you thought you could,
But you come awake the way you are instead.
All my friends and lovers shine like the sun,
I just turn and walk away,
One way or another I'm not coming undone,
I'm just waiting for the day,
All my friends have,
All my friends have.
