stand around and wait for it to happen
because there ain’t no rain that’s bigger than the sun
there’s just curious people
hanging on to dimes and quarters
you got them to own, you got them to hold

i wish that we were all in California
where the haves are bigger, bigger than the sky
and the have-nots focus on becoming bigger people
but you gave them enough, you gave them enough

you gave them sight to see horizons, but they couldn’t buy it
we had ambition to be heroes, but we never tried it

all my friends are ordinary people
with the strangest visions when they go to sleep
but every covert opera that we sing displays emotion too curiously
too curiously

if it wasn’t for companions, i would not be living
we get tired we get frightened, but we keep on giving

oh you should know, you should know it’s not like that
you should know it’s not like everyone has dark eyes
and you can’t find love

but if there’s no one on the rise, and you’re gonna give up
just hold the sunrise like you’ll never get up
if you’re stuck on a mountain and can’t get down
just go back to sleep with your head to the ground
