Sixteen never came.
He just wanted to be understood.
His mother knew his name
But never found the time to love her son.
Of all the things in the world.

We just need someone
We are more than wandering lights
Shadows in the dawn
We all need someone to carry each other through it all
Everybody needs someone.

She was 23 when she lost herself out to the streets.
Red light nights, just to survive.
All she wanted was a friend
To talk to late at night.
Of all the things in the world.

We just need someone
We are more than wandering lights
Shadows in the dawn
We all need someone to carry each other through it all
Everybody needs someone.

Of all the things in the world
Of all the dreams in the world

    General CommentFirst off..it's 9:27.. and..beautiful song it basicly is summed up in this verse
    We just need someone
    We are more than wandering lights
    Shadows in the dawn
    We all need someone to carry each other through it all
    Everybody needs someone.

    General CommentThose lines are what we dwindle down to, at least if we didn't have anyone. We'd be nothing if we didn't have people to talk with and be ourselves with. I've never heard a song about this but I always think about it. So props, indeed.
