Versuri Jackson Browne - The Late Show

Everyone I?ve ever known has wished me well 
Anyway, that?s how it seems, it?s hard to tell 
Maybe people only ask you how you?re doing 
?Cause that?s easier than letting on how little they could care 
But when you know that you?ve got a real friend somewhere 
Suddenly all the others are so much easier to bear 
Now to see things clear it?s hard enough, I know 
While you?re waiting for reality to show 
Without dreamin' of the perfect love 
And holding it so far above 
That if you stumbled onto someone real, you?d never know 
(You?d never know) 
You could be with somebody who is lonely too 
  (Sometimes it doesn?t show) 
He might be trying to get across to you 
(Words can be so slow) 
When your own emptiness is all that?s gettin' through 
There comes a point when you?re not sure why you?re still talking 
I passed that point long ago 
(Long ago) 
I?m so tired of all this circling 
And all these glimpses of the end 
  (You know it?s useless to pretend) 
That?s all the voices say, you?ll go right on circling 
Until you?ve found some kind of friend 
Well, I saw you through the laughter and the noise 
You were talking with the soldiers and the boys 
While they scuffled for your weary smiles 
I thought of all the empty miles 
And the years that I've spent looking for your eyes 
  (Looking for your eyes) 
Now I'm sitting here wondering what to say 
  (That you might recognize) 
Afraid that all these words might scare you away 
  (To break through the disguise) 
No one ever talks about their feelings anyway 
Without dressing them in dreams and laughter 
I guess it's just too painful otherwise 
Look, it's like you're standing in the window 
Of a house nobody lives in 
And I'm sitting in a car across the way 
(Let's just say) 
It's an early model Chevrolet 
(Let's just say) 
It's a warm and windy day 
You go and pack your sorrow 
The trash man comes tomorrow 
Leave it at the kerb and we'll just roll away
