Sometimes I was cold
Sometimes I was cruel
But I tried to be closer to you
And the world seems so hard
So the losers and the lonely
‘aint it strange that the sky is so blue

And the world goes on
As if it’s done by actors
But you couldn’t learn your lines
You silly fool
And if it’s all been told
I guess that nothing really matters
You’re performing so that they can laugh at you

The sidewalks swell
With the static heat of summer
And the streetlight falls softer than sound
She eyes the clock thinkin’ of the evening
She’s going out on the town
And the world goes on as a sea of empty faces
On the subway but she’s only passing through
She’s gonna find her way
‘cause it’s summer in the city
And there’s no one left to tell her what to do

We go through the doorways of life all alone
We get truer or less so in time
Standing in shadows down streets of the soul
Are the secrets we all wanna find
And the world goes on as a carnival of senses
Spinning light into illusion as the same
Honey, the rain will shine
And all the flowers will be ringin’
When you hear them call your name
When you hear them call your name
