  • Me and Sam in the car, talking 'bout America
    Heading to the wishing well, we've reached our last resort
    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 why, what a terrible time to be alive
    If you're prone to overthinking and
    Why why, what a terrible time to be alive
    If you're prone to second guessing" and

    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 have done if we had entered and had won
    We're each convinced that nothing would have 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 why, what a terrible time to be alive
    If you're prone to over thinking and
    Why why, what a terrible time to be alive
    If you're prone to second guessing" and

    Hey pretty smiling people
    We're alright together, we're alright together
    Hey pretty shining people
    We're alright together, we're alright together

    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 Writer/s: George Barnett
