Hey there new friend across the sea
If you figure things out would you figure in me
Wouldn't it be a thing
To live somewhere quietly where there's a breeze
And there's a reason for us to be

I look at people here in this city and wonder if they're lonely
or like me they're not content to live as things are meant to be
When were you happy?
How long has that been?

Who speaks for them and then again
Who speaks for me?
My vote was never counted, so who upon this earth knows what it is that I believe?
We're all looking for answers where no answers can be found
Hey there new friend across the sea
If you figure things out would you figure in me
Wouldn't it be a thing
To live somewhere quietly where there's a breeze
And there's a reason for us to be

I look at people here in this city and wonder if they're lonely
or like me they're not content to live as things are meant to be
When were you happy?
How long has that been?

Who speaks for them and then again
Who speaks for me?
My vote was never counted, so who upon this earth knows what it is that I believe?
We're all looking for answers where no answers can be found
