All My Friends Lyrics

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 17 had a better dream
Now I'm 33 and it isn't me
But I'd think of something better if I could
All my friends and lovers
Will 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 into the dirty ground
And said I should have put her back there if I could
Well everyone needs a better day
And I'm tryin' to find me a better way
To get through the things I do and the things I should
All my friends and lovers
Will leave me alone
To try to have a little fun
One way or another
I just wish I had known
To go out walking in the sun
To find out if you were the one

does it make you wanna come a little closer now?
and did you want to 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
Well all you want is a beauty queen
But not a superstar
But everybody's dream machine
All you want is a place to lay your head
You go to sleep dreamin' 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
They shine like the sun
Well I just turn and walk away
One way or another
I'm not comin' undone
I'm just waiting for the day
All my friends
All my friends
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Ah ah
