And we're sitting here
Wondering where the peaceful night has gone.
Shadows on the street, our lives still go on.
Another day, the songs the same.
Forget our dreams, and play the game.
The shadows on our street are clearer now, in light,
We see, this is as it's meant to be.
Don't look there, just look at me.
And it's waking now
And the grayness of the day will be here,
Want you near.
