Ocean wide and water deep
Noddin' off you fall asleep
No one understands their pain
Look outside it's about to rain


Fallin' out of a blue sky
Walk the dog and swat the fly
No one's 'round to recognize
Shades of black behind blue eyes


Now you've gotta prove it all to me
Or you can let it pass just like a speeding car
Is there something left here you gotta see?
Or is it all a million miles from where you are?


Trees are tall and grass is green
One's alone and two's a team
Play guitar and make a scene
Read about it in a magazine


Tired of playin' what to be?
Friend is now an enemy
Slam a door and break a glass
From there to here has gone too fast


Now you've gotta prove it all to me
Then you let it slide to somewhere far
Is there something left here you gotta see?
Or is it all a million miles from where you are?
