Neil Young – On The Beach lyrics
The world is turnin',
I hope it don't turn away,
The world is turnin',
I hope it don't turn away.
All my pictures are fallin'
From the wall where
I placed them yesterday.
The world is turnin',
I hope it don't turn away.

I need a crowd of people,
But I can't face them
Day to day,
I need a crowd of people,
But I can't face them
Day to day.
Though my problems
Are meaningless,
That don't make them
Go away.
I need a crowd of people,
But I can't face them
Day to day.

I went to the radio interview,
But I ended up alone
At the microphone,
I went to the radio interview,
But I ended up alone
At the microphone.
Now I'm livin'
Out here on the beach,
But those seagulls are
Still out of reach.
I went to the radio interview,
But I ended up alone
At the microphone.

Get out of town,
Think I'll get out of town,
Get out of town,
Think I'll get out of town.
I head for the sticks
With my bus and friends,
I follow the road,
Though I don't know
Where it ends.
Get out of town, get out of town,
Think I'll get out of town.

'Cause the world is turnin',
I don't want to
See it turn away.
