(Verse) And there's people, how they say
Show their faces, but they have no name
And there's colors, all with red white and blue
The only color is me and you

(Chorus) While I'm away, what will they say?
While I'm away, while I'm away

(Verse) Faithful, how they cry
Cause you're laughing
Well I wonder why

(Chorus) While I'm away, what will they say?
While I'm away, while I'm away

(Verse) People, how they say
Show their faces, but they have no name

(Chorus) While I'm away, what will they say?
While I'm away, while I'm away

(Bridge) We're driving down the road
Yes I've seen it here before
Knock down the open door, yeah
People come and go... I know
They will never see the light
Close the door and say good night, yeah

Oooh... oooooh

(Verse) Faithful, how they cry
Cause you're laughing
Well I wonder why

(Chorus) While I'm away, I'm away
While I'm away, I'm away
While I'm away, I'm away
While I'm away, I'm away
... I'm away

(Outro)

People... are they sane?
