A baby bird with brand new wings
A little girl on a playground swing
The elderly lose their teeth
And little old me, I lost my key
So I stay inside to watch TV
Where the anchor lies about the middle-east
Where the prophets cry for old Paris
Because the romance died, but it didn’t in me

Everything is happening
Everything is happening at the same time
But if you listen close enough you might find
Listen close enough and you’ll hear the world cry

A black star falls into the sea
To make room for the next prodigy
Cause there’s a genius born in a basement suite
With digital toys and a symphony
Oh what about me, yeah what about me
What about me and my rock and roll dreams
What about them in the factories
Who never sleep, who never dream

Everything is happening
Everything is happening at the same time
But if you listen close enough you might find
Listen close enough and you’ll hear the world cry

And the Americas are hooked on drugs
And the government is run by thugs
If there’s a God above it's not enough
But I don’t care cause I’m in love

Everything is happening, yeah, yeah
Everything is happening at the same time
But if you listen close enough you might find
Listen close enough and you’ll hear the world cry

And everyone is speaking up
Everyone’s just spilling guts at the same time
But if we listen up enough and shut our mouths
Listen up enough we might hear the world sigh
