Lyrics:

Somebody told me,
That you walked
All the way here,
Just to find me,
But now you're here,
We've got nothing to say.

Fear and insecurity,
Stole away our dreams
But your face sings songs i'd love to hear
But I don't know what it means
Should I take your hand and pick you up
And walk off in the sun?
Or we sit in silence and drink our tea,
Then turn our backs to run?

We'll never know
We'll never try
We're growing old and soon we'll die.

Cos' somebody told me
That you smile
All through the day time
But you cry at night
When you're alone
Cos' you've got no one to hold.
Life and love can come and go
Or leave us in the cold
But we'll freeze to death before we see
What can't be bought and sold
Should we sing these songs of innocence
Or just close our eyes and hope?
That a better world is possible
If we rise above the smoke?

We'll never know
We'll never try
We're growing old and soon we'll die.

Somebody told me,
That they saw,
You from afar
And that you'd grown old
And when you died
That there'd be no one to cry

We move so fast we can hardly see
Where we want to go
But we float like leaves and an autumn breeze
We ebb and then we flow
Should we stamp our feet and raise our fists
And fight against the tide?
Or we bow our heads and slowly drowned
Because we never tried?

We'll never know
We'll never try
We're growing old and soon we'll die.

We'll never know
We'll never try
We're growing old and soon we'll die.

Somebody told me,
That you walked
All the way here,
Just to find me,
But now you're here,
We've got nothing to say.
