Seems like I'm always runnin'
Always chasin' poet's dreams
But this voice that keeps on whisperin'
"Girl, you'll never quite know what it means"
And they say it would be so easy for me
If I accepted what I see with my eye
But I can't help thinkin'
No, won't stop thinkin'
Or lookin' for another sign
Oh, oh life, won't you let me ride?
Oh, life, won't you let me ride?
Cobbled stones and school yard bones
Are coverin' the streets and lanes
Oh, wasn't it sometimes beautiful?
Oh, and wasn't it all insane?
And don't we all fit together somehow
Or is it only just me?
Is anyone home
Or am I sailin' alone
On my own little part of the sea?
Oh, oh life, won't you lend me your key?
Oh, life, won't you lend me the key?
Life, sit down and talk with me
I've got some things to say
Why do you give me the feelin' that I know you so well
And then I you watch you take it all away?
Life, you're like that man that I love
But I'll never understand
I swear I'll have nothin' to do
Neither of you
But I keep runnin' right back again
Oh, oh life, won't we ever be friends?
Oh, life, can't we just be friends?
Oh, life, will we ever be friends?
