New Model Army - Where I Am



He said I get a dollar a day to watch all the cars
Of the rich come down for the beach and the bars
Their distracted faces always looking away
But I'm OK I just watch the sea
The rise and fall like it's inside of me
And no two days the same

I am where I am, I'm not so hard to find
I do what I can with what they leave behind
I'm with who I'm with, I speak with who is near
Come back, I am here

Into all the empty spaces leer a hundred thousand faces
Scream a hundred million voices if you let them come
But I just feel the breath of wind that dries the sweat upon my skin
Slowly breathing out and breathing in

And I am where I am, I'm not so hard to find
I do what I can with what they leave behind
I'm with who I'm with, I speak with who is near
Come back, I am here

And everybody wants to be somewhere else
Everybody wants to be someone else
It seems like everybody wants to be someone else
Everybody wants to be somewhere else
The wind blows the water, patterns racing across the bay
And the sand slides through your fingers and it's all made from the same
For what you touch well that's what makes you, is there beside you always

There are people that I'll never know
From places still I'll never go
They play their dramas out from scene to scene
But the insects crawl through the blades of grass
The summer storms they slowly pass
The colours change in the arcing of the sun

And I am where I am, I'm not so hard to find
I do what I can with what they leave behind
I'm with who I'm with, I speak with who is near
Come back, I am here
