"Song To Alex" lyrics - STRAWBS

"Song To Alex"

I've been many places, I've travelled many cities
Paris to Toronto and the rest
The travelling can bring you down, you're always on your own
But I see friendly faces everywhere.

From a song that tells your heartstrings to a sea of smiling faces
A careless word can make you feel so sad
But in the end I add things up and I find it's all worthwhile
When I see friendly faces everywhere.

The windswept streets are empty when my working day is over
I always think of home last thing at night
Then I close my eyes and fall asleep for I know that in my dreams
I'll see friendly faces everywhere.
