Rock and roll
You are envy, I am
So uncool
Still I want to do the best I can
Let’s meet on the corner and act like we’re old friends
We can talk about the streetlights
The people
Surrounding you
In a haze

Won’t you tell me how it feels
To be a nervous man
At the wheels
You don’t have a master plan
But you will start today
You will start today

I called you up
Cause I felt so guilty
Ended up
It was not such a pretty scene
Let’s dump the ashtray, wipe the table clean

We can talk about the streetlights
The people
Surrounding you
In a haze

Won’t you tell me how it feels
To be an famous man
At the wheel
You don’t have a master plan
But you will start today
You will start today
You will start

When all of your fear is gone
And you’re thinking that you’re strong enough
To make the jump up to the big big sky, sky

We can talk about the streetlights
The people
Surrounding you
It’s a strong pull
We can talk about the streetlights
The people
Going down

And you will start today
You will start today
You will start today
You will start
Today

    General CommentTo me this song is about 2 friends which are on different stages in life. they've lost contact, and the (famous) "sucsesfull one" of them is feeling down and anxious and he could really need a good friend, and the old friend says he'll be there to listen and talk. They don't need to talk about how succsesfull he is etc. they can talk about something as simple as streetlights. I think the streetlights symbolize something, im not sure what though.. maybe the old times which will light up and make him feel better when the darkness sorounds him. Basically the friend is telling him, everything is going to be better soon.

    General CommentThis song is about 2 friends, like Mandalay said. One is very successful, and one has no plan in his life, and is uncool and a loser. They haven't seen each other in a while, because they have different lives. The Famous one feels guilty about his success while his friend flounders, and calls him up to talk to him about everyday things. He tries to be a friend again, and tell him that he too can be successful, starting from today.
