Genesis – Man On The Corner lyrics

See the lonely man there on the corner,
What hes waiting for, I don't know,
But he waits everyday now.
Hes just waiting for something to show.

And nobody knows him,
And nobody cares,
Cos theres no hiding place,
Theres no hiding place - for you.

Looking everywhere at no one,
He sees everything and nothing at all - oh.
When he shouts nobody listens,
Where he leads no one will go - oh.

Hes a lonely man, there on the corner,
What hes waiting for, I don't know,
But he waits everyday now.
And hes just waiting for something to show - oh.

Nobody knows him,
And nobody cares,
Cos theres no hiding place,
Theres no hiding place - for you and me.

Are we just like all the rest,
Were looking too hard for something hes got
Or moving too fast to rest.
But like a monkey on your back you need it.
But do you love it enough to leave it - ah.

Just like the lonely man there on the corner,
What hes waiting for, I don't know - oh.
But he waits every day now.
Hes just waiting for that something to show - oh.

Whos the lonely man there on the corner,
What hes waiting for, I don't know.
But hes there every day now.
And hes just waiting for something to show - oh.

Whos the lonely man there on the corner,
What hes waiting for, I don't know.
Oh but he waits every day now.
Hes just waiting for that something to show.
