  • Well, I know what it is
    But I don't know where it is
    Where it is
    Well, I know where it is
    But I don't know what it looks like
    What it looks like
    Well, I know what it looks like,
    But I don't know where she comes from
    Well, I know where she comes from,
    But I don't know what's her name.

    (and she said) This is a perfect world
    I'm riding on an incline
    I'm staring in your face
    You'll photograph mine

    And I've been walking, talking
    Believing the things that are true
    And I've been finding
    The difference between right and wrong...good and bad
    See me put things together
    Put them back where they belong
    Am I just like the others
    Have I always been singing the same song


    Somebody said that it happens all over the world
    I do believe that it's true
    And the sun's coming up
    And we're doing all the things that we should
    Doesn't everybody here believe in the things we do?

    (And she said)


    It's a strange situation
    What's wrong with you?
    What you doing in my house?
    And it's all true
    There's nothing wrong with you
    (And I said)
