There is a man named Joe/who lives this life alone/wonder when the night man comes/will anybody know?/that he sang a good song and loved crochet/and he once found love on a summer's day/but she loved that money more than his touch/yeah, he's seen a lot but it still ain't much

small lives...oooh////

Now, there goes Marisol/her heart is made of gold/she crossed her t's and dotted i's/but it still came as a surprise/when they up and took her house away/cause the bills got high and she couldn't pay/now she lives on the street that we all pass by/tell me tell me how is this a paradise?

small lives...oooh///

small lives, small lives ain't what it seems
small lives, small lives is you and me//
there's a universe and we're it's dust,
small lives is all of us//
