Lyrics

Halfway to Nowhere
By Alan S. Oatley 2000

Here we are,
Halfway to nowhere from where we ought to be
Not really somewhere but somewhere in between
Here we are.

There you go
Chasing after some one who really isn?t there
Doesn?t even see you and never really cared
But there you go and here we are.

Bridge: You say you?re looking
Looking for the one whose eyes light up
Whenever they see you look their way
But you?re not seeing
There is someone right in front of you, who?s looking
But you just look away. Hey!

(Instrumental)

Bridge: You say you?re looking
Looking for the one whose eyes light up
Whenever they see you look their way
But you?re not seeing
There is someone right in front of you, who?s looking
But you just look away. Hey!

Here we are,
Halfway to nowhere from where we ought to be
Not really somewhere but somewhere in between
Here we are. Here we are. Here we are.
