Lyrics

As the faint sound of an organ Dances on a gentle summer breeze The traffic moans On a distant but audible highway I get to thinking of my life And passages of time And what it really means To be alive They taught me about God Like it was some kind of cartoon They taught me about love Like it was wrong They taught me how to go Around the world in a balloon But they never taught me How to get along I didn’t want to tell the world How lonely life could be I wanted to be healed And to be strong I wanted every single word To set their spirits free And in your heart I wanted to belong But the loneliness creeps up behind me Like Frankenstein And the daylight seems to fade to black More often now And more I hope my life and times Is just a state of mind And I’ll look back And laugh somehow They taught me about God Like it was some kind of cartoon They taught me about love Like it was wrong They taught me how to sail Around the world in a balloon But they never taught me How to get along.
