Lyrics
There are people in Rome, people in Mexico
There are people climbing up the Eiffel Tower
There's a kite in the sky and a plane
There's burgundy and drizzling rain
And I can't say bad or good
Who's to say I should?
Who's to say I should?

I've been rocking the boat, I've been milking the goat
I've been walking past the sentry through the turnstile
And I don't know if it's wrong or right
To be putting up some kind of fight
And I can't say bad or good
Who's to say I should? Who's to say I should?

(Chorus)

We all have our reasons
For reaching for the diamonds in the night
While reaching through our seasons
Let's not forget the beauty that's in sight

There are hearts discontent, and a sly president
And hunger in Calcutta that's amazing
And your hand is on the phone
And the chill goes to the bone
And I think that it's a shame
That we can't give it a name
And it's so obscured by everything we say

There is tenderness here and a touch of despair
As we're reaching for each other in the morning
But I think it might be all right
If we try it out again tonight
And I think that it's a shame
That we can't give it a name
And I don't know if it's wrong or right
To be putting up some kind of fight
And I can't say bad or good
Who's to say I should? Sometimes I wish I could!

(Chorus)

We all have our reasons
For reaching for the diamonds in the night
While reaching through our seasons
Let's not forget the beauty that's in sight
