Pretty Shining People

By

Me and Sam in the car
Talking ’bout America
Heading to the wishing well
We’ve reached our last resort and…
I turned to him
Said “Man, help me out
I fear I’m on an island
In an ocean full of change
Can’t bring myself to dive in
To an ocean full of change

Am I losing touch?
Am I losing touch now?”
He said…

Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you’re prone
To overthinking it
Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you’re prone
To second guessing

Hey pretty smiling people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together, hey

Took it in turns
To dream about the lottery
And what we might’ve done
If we had entered and had won
We… we’re each convinced that
Nothing would’ve changed
But if this were the case,
Why is it a conversation anyway?

Are we losing touch?
Are we losing touch now?
He said…

Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you’re prone
To overthinking it
Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you’re prone
To second guessing

Hey pretty smiling people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together, hey

Don’t we all need love?
The answer is easy
Don’t we all need love?
The answer is easy
Don’t we all need love?
The answer is easy

Hey pretty smiling people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together

Hey pretty smiling people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We’re alright together
We’re alright together, hey
