This month's song. You might see someone you know.

lyrics

There’s a girl running through a crowd
She follows no directions
Awakened long before she ever had the chance
To crystallize her dreams
There’s a boy hiding in the crowd
For his own protection
Pictures that he made he’s holding in his hands
Displayed for all to see

They seem so familiar
When I look at you
They’re just so familiar
When I see me
They look so familiar

There’s the girl with buttons in her hand
Designs the world around her
There’s the boy, he’s living make-believe
Believes in what he’s made
Watching, hearing songs go ’round and ’round
Injections from the needle
And there’s the girl so gently on the keys
To save them from the grave

They seem so familiar
When I look at you
They’re just so familiar
When I see me
They look so familiar

There’s a place where I know the boys and girls that I know
Will be happy
Laughing, crying, screaming, running ’round — they will be there.

They seem so familiar
When I look at you
They’re just so familiar
When I see me
They look so familiar

They seem so familiar
When I look at you
Oh no
When I see me

They seem so familiar
When I look at you
They’re just so familiar
When I see me
They look so familiar
