I wish for a place
where the earth doesn't shake
if the earth won't be still
then I will

And my friends can be my family
and they could be my company
and I'll take them to a party
and we'll have fun
they will tell me if I'm near
to anywhere but here

I wish for a place
where it's not such a waste
I can tell the girls' my name
it's okay, although it's plain

can you tell me if I'm near to anywhere but here?

if I could sleep
then I would dream of what you promised me
then everything would seem better than it is

I wish for a place where I could go
cuz everything here moves so slow

Can you tell me if I'm near to anywhere but here?

I wish for a place
where the earth doesn't shake
if the earth won't be still
then you and I will
can you tell me if I'm near to anywhere but here?
