If I look like home to you
If I am your sign
Don't try to understand it girl
When I draw the line
It hasn't come to this
That you can say I waste my time

Looking everywhere and going nowhere

For the skies they look so lazy now
Heavy are the clouds
There's nothing here that I could learn
Or what it's all about
You haven't said a thing to me
And you talk so very loud
