lyrics

There's a kid with a kite out my window
I guess he doesn't know
Nothing's gonna change
No matter how the wind blows
And a tiny baseball team
Hits a tiny home run
How many years will standing here in a field still be fun?

Nothing's gonna change
That's just the way it goes
The world keeps spinning around the same
No matter how the wind blows

There's a kid with this dog out my window
He's trying to learn to throw
How many years since his dad's been here
And does he even know?
How long since he made the team
And sits in his room and screams
He'll be in jail by 17

Nothing's gonna change
It's just the way it goes
The world keeps spinning around the same
No matter how the wind blows

Birds are circling from above
They're scouting all around
No one tells the smallest out who is closest to the ground
Guess he doesn't know
Oh no, there he goes
No matter how the wind blows

Nothing's going to change
It's just the way it goes
The world keeps spinning around the same
No matter how the wind blows
