  • These days my waves get lost in the oceans
    Seven billion swimmers, man I'm going through the motions
    Sent up a flare, I need love and devotion
    Traded for some faces that I never know, notion
    Maybe I should try to find the old me
    Take me to the places and the people that know me
    Tryin' to disconnect, thinking maybe you could show me
    If there's so many people here, then why am I so lonely?

    Can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?
    Can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?

    Real friends, good friends, hard to find, let's face it
    Find the perfect tone and there's a flood in the basement
    Made a couple dollars now and I ain't tryin' to chase it
    Kids from Oklahoma, man we don't waste it
    I'm just tryin' to paint the picture for me
    Something I could give a damn about at maybe 40
    Years and I be ready and willing and able to edit the story
    'Cause there's so many people here to be so damn lonely

    Can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?
    Can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?
    I can see it in my, see it in my reflection
    Oh, can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?

    Lonely

    Right now, right now, I'm switching to a new lane
    Foot to the floor, man searching for the real thing
    Meet somebody else, sometimes ain't no shame
    Head to the clouds sayin'

    It's like can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?
    Can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?
    I can see it in my, see it in my reflection
    Oh, can I get a connection?
    Can I get, can I get a connection?

    Try'na find the old me
