You’ll Never Know
Words by Richie Havens

You’ll never know
You’re walking down the street
You see faces you’ve never seen before
You realize
That most of them you’ll never know
And that’s the way it is

We do the dance
We dangle on a string
And make believe that everything is real
Lost in a trance
They make us all dance alone
And that’s the way it is

Stand against the wind
Crying in the rain
Let the games begin
Pain is always, pain is always pain
We will let time tell us
That that’s the way it is

Do you believe
That with just one little smile
This whole world
Has changed a thousand times
Yet in a breeze
This whole world can be gone
Can’t you see there’s something wrong
Can’t you hear it in this song
I believe that’s the way it is
I believe that’s the way it is
I believe that’s the way it is
