See him there Most every day A lonely man and his guitar In his eyes, I see the pain All the faces and the places All the trouble that he's seen
There was a time There was a day They'd come from miles around They all knew his name But days gone by are gone Now only memories remain
Then he starts to play Suddenly the pain slowly fades away Tattered, torn, and frayed There's a place within his heart he'll always save For the song and emotion Know he's got to his dying day Song and emotion You can hear him play You can still hear him say "Better run for cover, 'cause it looks like rain again!"
And now his life is but a shadow of his dreams The calm is over, been stormin' for years He turns and leans his shoulder to the wind Lost again
All alone on his way to the top Somehow, somewhere, something was lost Through it all he knew his only friend was Song and emotion Know he's got to his dying day Song and emotion
Where are they now? Where are those people who promised him his dreams? Where are they now for this lonely creature on the streets, Broken, humbled by the cold reality? Life at the top ain't always what it seems Oh, better run for cover 'cause it looks like rain again! You best be careful of what you dream Of what you dream
Song and emotion Song and emotion Song and emotion Song and emotion.

Matt T from Brunswick, OhioI read someone said the riff at the bridge of the song sounded like Tesla ripped off Def Leppard-yes! It was a homage to Steve Clark, played very well I may add. Great great song!
Kieran from Brisbane, AustraliaIf you listen on the bridge it even half inches the riff from Leppards High n dry! Lol
