Somewhere Else

There's a place called Somewhere Else
Where the dogs play on the floor
And the girls in swaying dresses dance
To the music of the Blue Hill Boys
And if you want to sing out loud, you are welcome to
Doesn't really matter if you're clapping, but most people often do

If the question's why we came to this place,
Save your reason for another day
Cause you're day is long and the night is wide
It's OK, won't you come inside

By the door, there's a fellow there
Who'll ask you for some change
No, he isn't really now with the band,
He's just saving up for a drink
And on the wall a giant harp hangs, a fiddle and accordion
And pictures of all the bands that have played in an emblem of the sun

Soon the Room starts filling up
And you can't see the stage
The girl who was standing right next to you
Is dancing like a wave
And through the crowd there weaves a smile,
It goes from face to face
You wouldn't even think about leaving now,
It doesn't matter if it's getting late

If the question's why we came to this place,
Save your reason for another day
Cause you're day is long and the night is wide
It's OK, won't you come inside
