Lyrics: Who Are the People in my Life?

There are tenants moving by my nest
I can hear them shouting from my desk
There are parties raging ‘bove my deck
Faceless noises living in my head

Who are the people in my life?
Who are the strangers I deny?
Wouldn’t it be nice if they could meet my eye?
Wouldn’t it be nice?
Wouldn’t it be nice?

How they start each morning I don’t know
What they may be feeling doesn’t show
Wonder what they’re dealing with at home?
Why they could be drinking all alone

Who are the people in my life?
Who are the strangers I deny?
Wouldn’t it be nice if they could meet my eye?
Wouldn’t it be nice?
Wouldn’t it be nice?

Wouldn’t they be mothers and fathers?
Sons and daughters?
Everybody loves someone
Everybody needs fun

Everybody has a failing
Working worrying buying lying
Meddling peddling winning sinning
Bleeding breeding coddling dawdling
Snuggling humping kissing living people 

Can’t believe that lonely neighbour died
Really sad because we never cried
These are humans loving out their lives
How they do resemble you and I

We are the people in my life
We are the strangers I deny
Wouldn’t it be nice if they could meet my eye?
Wouldn’t it be nice?
Wouldn’t it be nice?
