Lyrics

All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold
All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold

I'd float away down the whispering way
Somewhere as far as it seems, boy
I'm proud to say that I feel faraway
So shame on remembering me, boy
I'd disappear just as I'm sitting here
Blame it on nothing to say, boy
I've failed to stay so I'm flying away
To wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow at all

(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Only love can stop you now
Float away from what you found
Only wheels can slow you down
Float away your floating

Any time at all
Any kind of blue sky over
Any kind of fall
Could land you on the lonely streets
Of anyone at all
Who's drifting from the arms of somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody

I've found my way from the city of gray
To the sunnier side of the street, boy
I'd roll away on the wheels of a dray
Or sail on a ship made of steam, boy
I'd flit to air maybe no one would care
For ever remembering me, boy
I've failed to stay so I'm flying away
To wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow at all

(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Only love can stop you now
Float away from what you found
Only wheels can slow you down
Float away your floating

Any time at all
Any kind of blue sky over
Any kind of fall
Could land you on the lonely streets
Of anyone at all
Who's drifting from the arms of somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody

I'd disappear just as I'm sitting here
Blame it on nothing to say, boy
Lovers today only faded away
To wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow at all
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow

(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Any time at all
Any kind of blue sky over
Any kind of fall
Could land you on the lonely streets
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Of anyone at all
Who's drifting from the arms of somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Somebody, somebody
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Somebody, somebody
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
(All of the streets are lonely, all of the faces are cold)
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow
Float away
Wake up tomorrow if we wake up tomorrow at all
