No place at all to call my own
Still wandering the world
And friends of mine are moving on
Getting comfortable cars
Getting married

In someone elses neighbourhood
I hear a telephone
Who lives in those well-lighted homes
With their windows aglow
In the evening?

Look at me
Crying in my sleep
No one has to rescue me
I'm no place at all

The sun goes down beyond the trees
No sound, no trace of wind
The world is calm and beautiful
But it's breaking my heart completely

Look at me
Crying in my sleep
No one has to rescue me
It's plain to see

I'm no place at all
I'm no place at all

Look at me
Crying in my sleep
No one has to rescue me
It's plain to see

Could it be
I'm following this reverie
To nowhere and nobody
To no place at all
To no place at all

    General Comment“This is also from the exile front, about being out of my element and doubting, s most artists do, taking the path less traveled by. I really fell in love with the 6/8 [a slow waltz tempo] on this record. It seems to serve the song rather than dictate the song.”

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who doesn't have a relationship and sees all her/his friends and all the people around her getting married and having good lives and having great relationships. She puts a brave front on (ex. "no one has to rescue me") and pretends like it doesn't bother her but secretly she wants exactly what they want (ex. "Look at me, Crying in my sleep"). If that's what the song is about well, then I can identify with that secret yearning for a relationship.
