Have you ever been so lonely that you felt quite close to tears And your thoughts went racing backwards to the happy by gone years To the days when you were twenty, fit and sprightly and care free And no challenge seemed too daunting you'd try climb the highest tree? .
Have you ever felt nostalgic and your thoughts went far away To the school yard in the lunch hour where you used to romp and play With your school friends from the old days have you wondered where are they Have they too grown slow and settled do they show their years in grey? .
Have you ever been in a bar room on a night out with the boys Felt the lilt of drunk man's laughter an intrusive sort of noise And a sudden rush of sadness bring the teardrops to your eyes And you go off to the toilet where your feelings you disguise.
And back home you think about it in the peace and in the quiet Whilst the others were so happy I felt down a bit tonight And you feel you'd one too many and you blame it on the beer But you've often drunk more liquor and tonight your thoughts were clear.
Have you ever at house party asked yourself what brought me here And you feel obliged to linger though you'd like to disappear And the people seem so friendly but you still feel out of place And you get the strangest feeling your's is not a welcome face? .
Have you ever on the train home after working hard all day Felt your effort has been wasted and at home you ought to stay Whilst the boss drives new mercedes you must struggle all the way And about that man you work for you don't have good word to say? .
Have you ever felt your best friend really not your friend at all Why he often pass your house by and he seldom ever call Except when he is after something and for him there is some gain And though he claim you are his best friend in your heart the doubt remain? .
Have you ever been in the company of a humorous sort of bloke And there were peals of laughter when he cracked a funny joke But the punch line seemed to slip you it went way above your head And you were left to wonder why they laughed at what he'd said? .
Have you ever watched a young man kiss his girlfriend on the street And you thought him a bit cheeky felt he ought be more discreet But you silently were wishing he were you and you were he And your feelings on the matter only sprung from jealousy? .
Did you ever meet young lady and she smiled and looked your way And your ego felt inflated she had helped to make your day Till you realized much later for you she could never fall She was just a friendly stranger and no feelings there at all? .
All these sort of situations you will meet along life's way And this game of life and living is no easy game to play In a simple situation a great challenge we can see And this thing called human feelings is too big a thing for me.
