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 CommentThe first stanza refers to a suicide. The third refers to a girl who had to prostitue herself (red light nights) in order to make enough money to survive. It makes a good point and I'm sure the title refers to a Bible verse, but I'm not sure which. Is it just me, or do all their songs sound like Christmas?
