The sky opened wide like the tide
And I wanted to know
Where are my friends tonight?
So I got into my stride
And I walked to the thekla
I walked inside
And I peered into the atmosphere
And there were people and girls and beers and hair
But no one that I wanted
There was no one that I wanted to be near

Are they at the reef?
We're over here
Are they at ben morris?
We're over here
Are they at the capital theater?
Are they at the raus?
We're over here
Are they at some house?
We're right over here
Are they on 4th ave. walking up and down and up and down?

When I find you tonight
I'll put you in my boat and away we'll ride
Away from the city lights
To the place where the water makes the heavens and the earth collide
And oh my darling
I can feel you breathing
You're by my side
You're mine tonight

Are they at the raus?
We're over here
Are they at some house?
We're over here
Are they at the capital theater?
Are they at ben morris?
We're over here
Are they at mccoy's?
We're right over here
Are they on state street driving up and down and up and down?

And what I want to know
Is where all the people are
And where they go
And what I wouldn't give
To know where everybody gets together
Where it is that they really live
And oh my baby
When I can't find you I go crazy
It more than sucks
It's just too much
