lyrics

Caught in an August swelter
Annie came to town looking for shelter
What she didn’t know was that she was the storm

She said, “If I could truly see you and you could see me
But I can’t be you, and you can’t be me
Maybe then we would both know that we’re not alone.”

Kathleen lives in the city
Spent half her days did not know how beautiful she was
She kept the story of her life in her cell phone

One day I did not notice
She said, “If we only get one chance I hope I don’t blow this
Ah somebody please tell me that I’m not alone.”

Jimmy the Spoon's grand finale
Is passing out drunk in some dark alley
But he didn’t mind until he couldn’t wake up
To make it for his next show

They had the Snakeman on rhythm
He said, “Man, I wish I could have played with him.”
Instead he sat in the alley reciting a poem

“Some say it comes down to nothing
You can spend your whole life looking for something
Still you don’t know what to do
Or what to say even when you’re in Rome

“When our savior calls us
And if love and good luck follows us
Maybe then we will all know that we’re not alone.”
