lyrics

Verse 1

Well I’ve done a lot in a short space of time,
and I’ve seen faces that don't know how to smile.
People on the ground they look up at you,
its hard to switch off but that’s what I'm trying to do.
Because someone told me the world owes you nothing,
I think it might be true but I feel something out there.

Chorus

And I wonder what its like to know there's no one,
that you can turn to when you need to open up and tell someone, tell them how you feel.

Verse 2

Stand clear of the closing doors please,
That’s all they hear ringing in their ears.
Some of them say they served their country,
And some of them I wonder where is their family.
And someone told me the world owes you nothing,
I think it might be true but I feel something out there.

Chorus

And I wonder what its like to know there's no one,
That you can turn to when you need to open up and tell someone, tell them how you feel.

Verse 3

It gets me down when I see you eating,
Something that someone thought was beneath them.
Sitting on the ground with your life's treasures,
And people run past you at their leisure.
And someone told me the world owes you nothing,
I think it might be true but I feel something out there.

Chorus

And I wonder what its like to know there's no one,
That you can turn to when you need to open up and tell someone, tell them how you feel.
