somehow 

somehow forgotten through the years
   but ya managed around somehow
      to survive your precious tears 
then they said it was supposed to last forever 
   but now it sometimes seems like a dream 
      i’ve seen the millions gettin high by the light of the silver sky 
nobody cares or dares anymore, that’s what it seems 
   any way i could make you stay?
      i’d love to see ya shinin your light on the world again
	  
         do ya know which way to go? 
         when the cold wind blows 
         do ya think you will run and hide 
         or are ya ready to take a ride?

the tears fall like rain n all the plastic people make their merry way
but it doesn’t seem very different than the pain inside their hearts 
that makes them live to play and fight all day and all night 
     singin help me ‘fore i lose my way…

people come from miles around just to touch the sky 
some alive and some will try to fly
   no one wonders why it’s you and i 
      they’ve been putting out of their minds 
	  
and though the points’re changin
   as we wander down the lonely road
      still there seems another chance to be free 
         somethin somewhere yet to be

here i stand on the lonely road, 
   and a noble voice says: prophet, come to me
      and i heard him say in quiet desperation to let it be
	  
and though the voices’re changin 
   everything they say from day to day
      still there seems another chance to be free 
         somethin somewhere yet to be

somehow, yer smiles removed my fears
   but what i usedta think was light in yer eyes, i realize is only tears
anyway, it was sposedta take away yer pain
   remember how we usedta dance in the rain?
      well, i still can see a smile behind the laugh of a madman, yeah
	  
         do ya know which way to go? 
         when the cold wind blows 
         do ya think you will run and hide
         or are ya ready to take a ride?
