EVERYBODY'S TALKIN'


evrybody's talkin' at me • I can't hear their voices
only echoes of my mind
people stoppin' starin' • I can't see their faces
only shadows of their eyes

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
through the pourin' rain
goin' where the weather suits my clothes
bankin' off the north east wind
sailin' on the summer breeze
skippin' over the ocean like a stone

and everybody's talkin' at me • I can't hear their voices
only echoes of my mind
but I won't let you leave my love behind ...
