Now, exactly what’s an eternal newcomer?

August 19, 2016

City’s new, every time I cross the bridge it’s like I see it for the first time
It is promising and never too bright for my eyes, and to my surprise
Don’t have the heart, hard to see where to start and it isn’t for the first time
I can’t do anything other than look in from the outside
Painfully so

But what can I say, I am eternally new here
And I’m at the sidelines of my life
But what can I say, I’m the eternal newcomer,
the eternal newcomer

Got my keys, got my balcony, a great view of the unknown
They say it’s never too late to participate, can’t leave well-enough alone
So here I go

But what can I say, I am eternally new here
And I’m at the sidelines of my life
But what can I say, I’m the eternal newcomer,
the eternal newcomer

Is there somewhere I am dying to go
Somewhere I don’t know where it is
I just know that it’s so easy to always be fresh in
And always ready to go

But what can I say, I’m the eternal newcomer,
the eternal newcomer
