What can only be here
Get too hot and can't go on
I grew up in a town much different than this one
Where the language is upside down

So we can't talk about it
You try your best to stay awake
I been digging so long
I don't know which hole I should take

But you put me on this vacation
It's really not the time
It's winter halfway across the world
Somewhere its bright daylight

And somewhere someone sails the ocean
Somewhere someone's sailing the seas
Somewhere someone's calling out my name
Somewhere they can't see me
They can't see me

I lived in the background
I sleep behind the scenes
I had someone take all my calls
And watched them outplay me

And I can't believe what you're hearing
I can't believe what you said
I can't believe I can't find this damn address
Before I drop dead

And somewhere someone sails the ocean
And somewhere someone's running the streets
Somewhere someone's calling out my name
Somewhere they're looking for me

    Lyric Correctionhere's what I got:

    what can only be here
    get too hot and can't go on
    I grew up in a town much different than this one
    where the language is upside down

    so we can't talk about it
    try your best to stay awake
    I been digging so long I don't know which hole I should take

    but you put me on this vacation
    this was really not the time
    it's winter halfway across the world
    somewhere it's bright daylight

    and somewhere someone sails the ocean
    somewhere someone's telling the seas
    somewhere someone's calling out my name
    somewhere they can't see me
    they can't see me

    I lived in the background
    I sleep behind the scenes
    I had someone take all my calls
    and watched them outplay me

    and I can't believe what you're hearing
    I can't believe what you said
    I can't believe I can't find this damn address
    before I drop dead

    and somewhere someone sails the ocean
    somewhere someone's running the streets
    somewhere someone's calling out my name
    somewhere they're looking for me
