Todd Rundgren – Blue Orpheus lyrics

If you want to cry
You can always find something to cry about
It's so easy to be wise
Over someone else's tears
But you have a gift
That the rest of us just can't live without
And it's something in your voice
When you tell us how you feel

'Cause we've all loved something and lost it
And it's burning my heart
I can't open my mouth and just let it out

But when I hear my Blue Orpheus sing
I know that life is a wonderful thing
Somewhere there's love and perpetual spring
I know life is a wonderful thing

Seems so long ago
The sound of your joy filled the atmosphere
We can make it on our own
But the road is so rocky and steep
And when you feel lost
No one tells you what you need to hear
And the only dream you have
Is the one that's in your sleep

'Cause we soon forget what we're here for
I need someone to say he's got dreams of his own
I'll know I'm not alone

I want to hear my Blue Orpheus sing
I'll know that life is a wonderful thing
Somewhere there's love and perpetual spring
I'll know life is a wonderful thing

You will one day be together again
Though you can not see her
She is somewhere in the world
