just once lyrics – juliet’s wishing well

there’s a man
lives right outside my door
lives on the hardwood floor
where he was born
he was brought here
against his will
but he lives there still
to this day
and i never knew
he was out there
and now i can’t look away
he stands out in the rain
tries to fake a smile
says i’d like to touch
the sky
just once
i know a girl
she likes to dance
and her feet by chance
do the same
she talks to me
in a parking lot
seems a good spot
to make a friend
she walks away
and my eyes burn
as i watch her turn
for one day
she stands out in the rain
she tries to fake a smile
says i’d like to touch the sky
then they met one day
on a mountain peak
playing hide and seek in the dark
he opened up his eyes
which were always shut
and she helped him up
as far as he could go
but his roots they were dry
so he tried and tried
and tried and tried and tried
he stands out in the rain
and he tries to fake a smile
cause he couldn’t touch the sky
