Em F#m G D C
Eight miles high and when you touch down
G D C
You'll find that it's stranger than known
Em F#m G D C
Signs in the street that say where you're going
G D C Em Am
Are somewhere just being their own.

Nowhere is there warmth to be found
among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for its sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living some standing alone
