Well, I try so goddamn hard to get so far that I don’t go nowhere
I see every single thing as it could be, and then I just sit there
And I don’t know why
I don’t know why

Well, now it’s just you and me, so privately, I have a confession
I believe now, you and me, though we’re unique, we ain’t nothing special
And that’s all right
Yeah, that’s all right

Well, as people come and go, I’ve come to know we’ve all met before
And our memories are gone, but we live on over and over and over
And we don’t know why
And that’s all right

Yeah, that’s all right
