Here - there's no music here, I'm lost
In streams of sound
Here - am I nowhere now,
Where - ever I may go, just where
Just there I am
All of the things
That are my life, my desire, my beliefs, my moods
Here is my place, without a plan
Here, 2nd Avenue
Just out of view
Here - is no traffic here, no plan
All the things that are my life, my moods
My beliefs, my desires, me alone, nothing to regret
This is no place, but here I am,
This is not quite yet.
