Take your headphones off, little girl
Listen to the sounds of the world
Put your heart into it
It's all intuitive

Paint a picture black and white
Write a book about the meaning of life
You gotta use what you've been given
To change the world you're livin' in

What would you do with all the answers?
What would you do if you're the only one?

Annie dreams of others when she's wide awake
Wishin' on the beauty that they hide away
And if someday you slip away from all the souls that you've saved,
I promise I'll find you in the afterglow

Starin' out the window
Seein' the streetlights pass you by
In the reflection in your eyes
Your thoughts collide

It's more than coincidence
Believe in it ever since, you know,
"The times, they are a-changin'"
All that's happened in the past.

What would you do with all the answers?
What would you do if you're the only one?

Annie dreams of others when she's wide awake
Wishin' on the beauty that they hide away
And if someday you slip away from all the souls that you've saved,
I promise I'll find you in the afterglow
I promise I'll find you in the afterglow (x3)
