Are You Out There
Dar Williams - End of the Summer [1997]

Buy the CD at Amazon.com!

Perhaps I am a miscreation,
No one knows the truth,
There is no future here
And you're the DJ speaks to my insomnia,
And laughs at all I had to fear,
Laughs at all I had to fear

You always play the madmen poets,
Vinyl vision grungy bands
You never know who's still awake,
You never know who understands and

Are you out there, can you hear this?
Jimmy Olson, Johnny Memphis,
I was out here listening all the time
And though the static walls surround me,
You were out there and you found me,
I was out here listening all the time

Last night we drank in parking lots,
And why do we drink,
I guess we do it 'cause
And when I turned your station on,
You sounded more familiar than that party was,
You were more familiar than that party

It's the first time I stayed up all night,
It's getting light, I hear the birds
I'm driving home on empty streets,
I think I put my shirt on backwards

Are you out there, can you hear this?
Jimmy Olson, Johnny Memphis,
I was out here listening all the time
And though the static walls surround me,
You were out there and you found me,
I was out here listening all the time

And what's the future, who will choose it,
Politics of love and music
Underdogs who turn the tables,
Indie versus major labels
There's so much to see through,
Like, our parents do more drugs than we do, oh
 
Corporate parents, corporate town,
I know every TV set that has 'em lit
They preach that I should save the world,
They pray that I won't do a better job of it,
Pray that I won't do a better job

So, tonight I turned your station on,
Just so I'd be understood
Instead, another voice said I was,
Just too late and just no good

Calling Olson, calling Memphis,
I am calling, can you hear this?
I was out here listening all the time
And I will write this down and then,
I will not be alone again, yeah
I was out here listening,
Oh, yeah, I was out here listening,
Oh, yeah, I am out here listening all the time
