living up to expectations
(Music: Alice May, Words: Alice May)


I was heading for the office
when a stranger stopped and said:
"What a lovely day to say hello
to someone you've just met".
So, this crazy situation
kept me busy all day long.
He was more than just a stranger
and the next thing he was gone.

I was living up to expectations,
but you were hanging on to your sweet dream.
We would make this world a little brighter.
It isn't quite as bad as it may seem.

Baby, somewhere in this crazy land
the sun is shining bright.
Somewhere the man is playing
and somewhere hearts are light.
Somewhere women laughing and
somewhere children shout.
But the kindness of all people
is something we can't do without.
