I've been many places, I've passed through many cities
Paris to Toronto and the rest
The travelling can bring you down, you're always on your own
But I see friendly faces everywhere.
From a song that pulls your heartstrings to a sea of smiling faces
Oh, but a careless word can make you feel so sad
But in the end I add things up and I find it's all worthwhile
When I see friendly faces everywhere.
The windswept streets are empty when my working day is over
And I always think of home last thing at night
Then I close my eyes and fall asleep for I know that in my dreams
That I'll see friendly faces everywhere.
