See the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waitin' for, I don't know
But he waits, everyday now
He's just waitin' for, somethin' to show

And nobody knows him
And nobody cares
'Cause there's no hidin' place
There's no hidin' place for you

Lookin' everywhere at no one
He sees everythin' and nothin' at all, oh
When he shouts nobody listens
Where he leads no one will go, oh

He's a lonely man, there on the corner
What he's waitin' for I don't know
But he waits everyday now
And he's just waitin' for somethin' to show, oh

Nobody knows him
And nobody cares
'Cause there's no hidin' place
There's no hidin' place for you and me

Are we just like all the rest?
We're lookin' too hard for somethin' he's got
Or movin' too fast to rest
But like a monkey on your back you need it
But do you love it enough to leave it, ah

Just like the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waitin' for I don't know, oh
But he waits every day now
He's just waitin' for that somethin' to show, oh

Who the lonely man there on the corner?
What he's waitin' for I don't know
But he's there every day now
And he's just waitin' for somethin' to show, oh

Who the lonely man there on the corner?
What he's waitin' for I don't know
I thought he waits every day now
He's just waitin' for that somethin' to show
