The blue-eyed boy with the brown eyes
I couldn't tell if he was crying
I couldn't tell if he was with us
Or if he was in Amsterdam

The brand new girl in the old dress
Says someone should call his mom
I think it's time we cut her loose
Before she takes all of us down

We are the stars of our own show
Full of asides and inside jokes
We are the fittest of the weak
We're children playing in the street

We don't know our destination
We held hands and jumped aboard
We took a look at all our options
And traded them for something more

We are so far away from home
We don't respond when we are called|
These are events beyond control
And now our crowd is down to one
