Nobody really knows the pain
But everybody knows your name
You've got their full attention,
(All eyes on you)
Small talk can get you through the day
There's got to be a better way
When all your friends are faceless
(You can fake it)

He knows the highs and lows
He'll give you what you need
And we all agree it's time to shine
He'll stand and deliver
He goes about his day
Smile and a wink hello
When the picture's gone
Fadin' to black he's poppin' down Prozac
Nobody knows the highs and the lows

Sports cars and fancy souvenirs
That you collected all these years
So proud and self assured,
(Hold your head high)
A chest of broken memories
Of how and why and what could be
Still locked inside your closet
(You can't fake it)

He knows the highs and lows
He'll give you what you need
And we all agree it's time to shine
He'll stand and deliver
He goes about his day
Smile and a wink hello
When the picture's gone
Fadin' to black he's poppin' down Prozac
Nobody knows the highs and the lows

The access of a strong range of high pressure dominating the West Coast
Will shift up in Eastwood, but sunny skies and hot breezy conditions
Will continue to make the Southland sink.
Near record high temperatures may still occur in the
Inland Empire and the Orange and San Diego County Valleys
With highs today ranging from the mid-70s near the coast to the mid-90s inland.
By tonight, the gradual return of the offshore flow
Will push the gradients of fog along the immediate coast...

He knows the highs and lows
He'll give you what you need
And we all agree it's time to shine
He'll stand and deliver
He goes about his day
Smile and a wink hello
When the picture's gone
Fadin' to black he's poppin' down Prozac
Nobody knows the highs and the lows

Fadin' to black he's poppin' down Prozac
Nobody knows the highs and the lows
