It was a good time
Good time to stop and watch the city breathe, doll
You know, now we're lost
And have nothing to lose

I remember simple things
How's a building get so tall?
No one way to explain
Since we have not yet seen all

The sights there are here to see
Only them will we finally revel in

The good times
Good times
Oh, the good times
Shouldn't be this hard to find

When I see the people standing there
Shy, cerebral in the lonely air
Disenchanted, stony eyes
Bored to tears, but dry inside

Farther on, they'll collide
Intimate, but still strangers
The dangers in each other's eyes

I remember simple things
How's a building get so tall?
No one way to explain
Since we have not yet seen all

The good times
Good times
Oh, the good times
Shouldn't be this hard to find

    General Comment:something about this song I love, the melody reminds me of summer relaxation, picking strawberries, something like that.

    When I see the people standing there
    Shy, cerebral in the lonely air
    Disenchanted, stony eyes
    Bored to tears, but dry inside

    Farther on, they'll collide
    Intimate, but still strangers
    The dangers in each other's eyes

    these verses are just good.

    General Comment:I think he's lamenting the complexities of the modern world and how they infringe on a person's piece of mind. How it's very hard to just enjoy the simple things in life anymore.

    General Comment:this reminds me of when i was younger and went to the city for the first time. Being from a small town i was amazed about how all the people ignored me.(in my town if you walk by someone you say hi) they were all "dry and boring" and because of this i wanted nothing to do with their huge buildings and business suites.
