When I walk along your city streets and look into your eyes
When I see that simple sadness that upon your features lies
If my spirit starts to sink, it comes as no surprise
It's been a long way from anywhere like heaven to your town, this town

There's a pasture in the countryside I used to call my own
There's a natural pillow for my head, the grass there's overgrown, yes and no
I think of that place from time to time when I want to be alone
It's been a long way from anywhere like heaven to your town, this town

Now, people live from day to day, but they do not count the time
They don't see the days slipping by and neither do I

Now, people, they live from day to day, but they do not count the time, no
They don't see their days slipping by and neither do I
