He was still just a Kid with a pen in his pocket
She was a Beauty just back from the Orient
And, all kinds of mystery and stories behind her
The Kid always believed he was destined to find her

Old red brick buildings lining century streets
Dappled light from the Sun shining down thru the trees
In the curio shops, filled with treasures and songs
She said she'd stay for a while, but she never said how long
They kissed in the basement, she talked about politics
He played her some Dylan, said he never got tired of it
And, all of the best things she said for no reason
Like "Let go of Anger" and "Don't hate the Season"
And, "Why really hate anything?" and "Remember your Mother"
"It's brave to be truthful" and "Just consider the other..."
"Jealousy's poison, just consider the other..."

'Neath the trashpaper news and the gathering flies
The flash of a tragedy before the eyes
Never lacks for attention, at least at the start
But, quickly forgotten, 'less you're playing a part in it
Or, got something to say and the time for to say it
If you ain't got the time ain't that something to think about, Darling
If you really don't care ain't that something to consider, Dear

There's a house on the corner with nobody in it
The neighbors walk by and they wonder what happened
To the people inside and there's a crack in the window
It lets in the wind and the rain and the snow
And the Summertime bells from a distant cathedral
Everything looks a little bit different when somebody needs you
Yeah, your whole world can change all at once when somebody needs you

There's always a Kid with a crush on a Girl
Everything looks a little bit different from inside your world
When somebody needs you...
