Janis Ian - Some People's Lives Lyrics



Some people's lives
Run down like clocks
One day they stop
That's all they've got
Some lives wear out
Like old tennis shoes
No one can use
It's sad, but it's true

Didn't anybody tell them?
Didn't anybody see?
Didn't anybody love them
Like you love me?

Some people's eyes
Fade with their dreams
Too tired to rise
Too tired to sleep
Some people laugh
When they need to cry
And they never know why

Didn't anybody tell them
That's not how it has to be?
Didn't anybody love them
Like you love me?

Some people ask
If the tears have to fall
Then why take your chances?
Why bother at all?

And some people's lives
Are as cold as their lips
They just need to be kissed

Doesn't anybody tell them?
Doesn't anybody see?
Doesn't anybody love them
Like you love me?
'Cause that's all they need
