"Music Arcade" as written by and Neil Young....
Have you ever been lost
Have you ever been found out
Have you ever felt all alone
At the end of the day
Yeah I'm talkin' bout gettin' down
Take it easy - there's no one around
Just a mirror and you and me
And the TV sky

I was walkin down main street
Not the sidewalk but main street
Dodgin' traffic with flyin' feet
That's how good I felt
Took a spin in the laundromat
Played a game in the music arcade
Kept winnin' while the band played
That's how good I felt

(chorus)

Have you ever been singled out
By a hungry man
You're listening to the radio
He's washin' your window
When you look in those vacant eyes
How does it harmonize
With the things that you do?
That's how good I felt

(chorus)

There's a comet in the sky tonight
Makes me feel like I'm alright
I'm movin' prety fast
For my size
I really didn' mean to stay
As long as I have
So I'll be movin' on

    General Commentno one has left a comment on this song?
    this is one of the most beautiful songs he ever wrote people.
    i don't even know what it's about, but it sums up so many feelings.
    without being explicit about any of them.
    who hasn't felt lost at the end of the day staring up into a tv sky.
    and ending it the only way he knows how.
    moving on.
    these words don't come near to doing justice to this song.

    General CommentBrilliant track.
    Beautiful and emotional yet it is hard to put any meaningto some of these lyrics.

    I think wet can all relate to being alone, lost, singled out, broke.

    I love the sweet guitar riff at the very end, wish it went on and on.
