Written by John Mellencamp

As my time goes by
On the mean, cruel earth
Trying to find some peace
A little something to believe in
How can things go so wrong
In such a beautiful world
Why are so many people crying
Where's humanity gone
And every time it gets so dark
There's nothing for me to see

Something comes along (just like you)
Yea, just like you
Something so unbelievably beautiful
Just like you

Well, it happened the other day
I'm just walking down the street
I'm looking down at my shoes
With only myself in my way
I'm livin' in my head
Too much life in my veins
Forgetting all of the time
We're always in motion with angels
And every time it gets so dark
And there's nothing for me to see

Something comes along (just like you)
Yea, just like you
Something so unbelievably beautiful
Just like you

As my time goes by
On this mean, cruel world
Trying to find some peace
A little happiness to believe in
How can things go so wrong
In such a beautiful world
Why are so many millions crying
Where's humanity gone
And every time it gets so dark
There's nothing for me to see

Something comes along (just like you)
Yea, just like you
Something so unbelievably beautiful
Just like you

Yea come along (just like you)
Yea, just like you (just like you)
Something so unbelievably beautiful
Just like you
