You know how the story goes,
every town, to each their own
and we so rarely see
the people that we meet,

by all life strips away.
Hope is a seed, so let it be,
don’t get carried away.
Open up my attic door
a clutter of heartbreak, mistakes and more.
These issues that we face,
they’re deeper than the cellar,

Time is fleeting, the times are bleeding
The world needs something
and we don’t know what to do
we don’t know what to do.
We’re caught inside, our own lives
I want to see you.
Divided lives, side by side,
I want to meet you.
