See him thereMost every dayA lonely man and his guitarIn his eyes, I see the painAll the faces and the placesAll the trouble that he's seen
There was a timeThere was a dayThey'd come from miles aroundThey all knew his nameBut days gone by are goneNow only memories remain
Then he starts to playSuddenly the pain slowly fades awayTattered, torn, and frayedThere's a place within his heart he'll always saveFor the song and emotionKnow he's got to his dying daySong and emotionYou can hear him playYou can still hear him say"Better run for cover, 'cuz it looks like rain again!"
And now his life is but a shadow of his dreamsThe calm is over, been stormin' for yearsHe turns and leans his shoulder to the windLost again
All alone on his way to the topSomehow, somewhere, something was lostThrough it all he knew his only friend wasSong and emotionKnow he's got to his dying daySong and emotion
Where are they now?Where are those people who promised him his dreams?Where are they now for this lonely creature on the streets,Broken, humbled by the cold reality?Life at the top ain't always what it seemsOh, better run for cover 'cuz it looks like rain again!You best be careful of what you dreamOf what you dream
Song and emotion...Song and emotion...Song and emotion...Song and emotion...
