I tried everything, I've been everywhere
I asked all my friends and they've all been there
And it's always been, it'll always be
That there's no one here but me

I read the ancient walls, walked the winding streets
Followed the pretty words, slept in tangled sheets
But there is no cure across the sea
No there's no one here but me

And all the while, I've been wasting time
Putting the miles in an uphill climb
Chasing the smiles of the satisfied
On the other side

He was the poet king, he was the Promised Land
He was the solid rock, he was the shifting sand
And the only thing that's guaranteed
Is there's no one here but me

And all the while, I've been wasting time
Putting the miles in an uphill climb
Chasing the smiles of the satisfied
On the other side

And all the years I just threw away
Wringing the tears from a perfect day
Chasing the ghost of a paradigm
From another time

So now there's no one to measure the size of my dreams
No one to tell me how crazy they seem
No one to tell me the way it ought to be
I get to write my history, I get to tell it like I see it
If there's no one here but me

Hey, all the while, I've been wasting time
Putting the miles in an uphill climb
Chasing the smiles of the satisfied
On the other side

And all the years I just threw away
Wringing the tears from a perfect day
Chasing the ghost of a paradigm
From another time, yeah, yeah

All the while, all the time
All the years I just threw away
Well, I ain't looking back, no, no
