Lyrics and music: Geoff Sanborn

lyrics

I was a girl who had nothing but time, and I mean nothing
I went to the city and started to fill up with something

And now there isn't anything in sight that isn't bright with what I'm feeling,
People on the street make me complete and every barroom is a stage
Just lifting up my arms makes me feel like everything is starting over
And it's like a song, it's like a song, it's like a song, it's like a song

I went to work, met a man, had a girl, bought an apartment
I started to hear where the tune would go next, and what the words meant

And now a neighbor from the elevator's coming to my kitchen for some coffee,
Someone's talking to me half asleep in the middle of the night,
Someone's looking at me like she knows me and she needs me and she loves me
And it's like a song, it's like a song, it's like a song, it's like a song

I'm no judge but it sounds like what I heard in Indiana
Underneath the covers, whispering to myself,

"I am gonna be the queen of Rome and the princess of Chicago
I am gonna have the biggest parties that the world has ever seen
I am gonna meet a knight who takes my hand and lifts me up behind him,
And it'll be like a song, it'll be like a song, it'll be like a song, it'll be like a song, it'll be like a song"
