Everybody's talkin' at me
I don't hear a word they're sayin'
Only the echoes of my mind

People stop and stare
I can't see the faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm goin' where the sun keep shinin'
Through the pouring rain
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin' off on the northest wind
Sailing on a summer breeze
Skippin' over the ocean like a storm

Everybody's talkin' at me
Can't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind
