Artist: Counting Crows
Album: This Desert Life
Thought I might get a rocket ride
When I was a child but it was a lie
That I told myself when I needed something good
17 had a better dream now I'm 33 and it isn't me
But I'd think of something better if I could
All my friends and lovers leave me behind
And I'm still looking for a girl
One way or another, I'm just hoping to find a way
To put my feet out in the world
Caught some grief from a falling leaf
As she tumbled down to the dirty ground
Said I should've put her back there if I could
But everyone needs a better day
And I'm trying to find me a better way
To get from the things I do to the things I should
All my friends and lovers leave me alone
To try to have a little fun
One way or another, I just wish I had known
To go out walking in the sun
Find out if you were the one
Do you wanna come a little closer now?
Do you wanna dance with me?
Do you wanna hum a little harder now?
Can you see her waiting there?
Can you see her? 'Cause I'm almost there
Can you see her waiting there for someone like me?
All you want is a beauty queen but not a superstar
But everybody's dream machine
All you want is a place to lay your head
You go to sleep dreaming how you would
Be a different kind if you thought you could
But you come awake the way you are instead
All my friends and lovers shine like the sun
I just turn and walk away
One way or another, I'm not coming undone
I'm just waiting for the day
Oh, all my friends
Oh, all my friends
