Eight Miles High Lyrics By The Byrds

    eight miles high and when you touch down
    you’ll find that it’s stranger than known
    signs in the street that say where you’re going
    are somewhere just being their own

    nowhere is there warmth to be found
    among those afraid of losing their ground
    rain gray town known for its sound
    in places small faces unbound

    round the squares huddled in storms
    some laughing some just shapeless forms
    sidewalk scenes and black limousines
    some living some standing alone
