man on the corner lyrics – genesis

see the lonely man there on the corner
what he’s waiting for, i don’t know
but he waits everyday now
he’s just waiting for something to show

and n*body knows him
and n*body cares
cos there’s no hiding place
there’s no hiding place for you

looking everywhere at no one
he sees everything and nothing at all
oh, when he shouts n*body listens
where he leads no one will go

he’s a lonely man, there on the corner
what he’s waiting for, i don’t know
but he waits everyday now
he’s just waiting for something to show

n*body knows him
and n*body cares
cos there’s no hiding place
there’s no hiding place – for you and me
we’re just like all the rest
we’re looking too hard for something he’s got
or moving too fast to rest
but like a monkey on your back, you need it
but do you love it enough to leave it

just like the lonely man there on the corner
what he’s waiting for, i don’t know
but he waits everyday now
he’s just waiting for something to show
