(Donald Fagen)

In my life I have been all kinds of places
I have lived for the action and the thrill
Yes I’ve seen a thousand children sing
A sunset in Japan
When I close my eyes I see them still

But the road seems to lose its fascination
And I find there’s a picture in my mind
Of a room with windows on the sea
She’s waiting there for me
I drop out of space and time

Back in the maze with Lazy Nina
Walking the dog and watching Soul Train
Reading the paper
Going to movies
And at night we sing…

There are days when I wake up with a feeling
That the world is a strange and sunless place
It’s a world where words have lost their sense
Where nothing seems to fit
And then suddenly I see her face

In a dream I will drive along the ocean
At the end of a dark familiar ride
And I know the house I’m searching for
She’s standing at the door
And I’m right there by here side
