lyrics

There was a day when the world was on my side.
Everybody cheered.
You were the loudest.
For a second it seemed like you shifted just slightly.
The world was on my side and everybody cheered.
Now you are there in the city you belong to.
The borough by the sea that’s built to the sky where the pretty people live.
Sometimes I shake the way people shake when they don’t have the bad thing that makes them feel good.
You found another pageant from another world, and it looks like you can hold your own in the biggest pond.
God I’d love to swim with you again, but I know I never will.
There was time when they said our names together.
We shared each other's space, and we spent each other's time.
Sometimes I pace the way people pace when they don’t have the good thing that makes them feel bad.
Maybe I’ll escort you to the comic ball.
Maybe I’ll fly to your island.
Maybe you’ll see me as somebody else this time.
No, I know what you said.
Do know, I know what you said.
