Need to break out of this solitude, step out into this bitter city night.
There's a place down on the corner where they've got real ale, conversation, light.
Or maybe I'll just keep wandering beneath the quiet sky.
Yeah, watch those lean and hungry buildings stretching upwards for the quiet sky.
Well I spent twenty-five years hanging in there, hanging on for that lucky day.
Just hanging lose and praying for the breaks that never came my way...
Was that someone at my shoulder? In the corner of my eye?
I could have sworn someone was following beneath the quiet sky.
Well, I am not what you take me for, there is more to me than meets the eye
'Cause in a world of perfect darkness I was a firefly!
But now I watch ambition's lights fade and I wonder why I ever even tried.
Oh, just another lost soul wandering - soul wandering - beneath the quiet sky.
Well did you ever get the feeling someone's watching from the quiet sky?
