my lyricsbox
Safe as houses built on quicksand
Because I place my trust
In small time tricksters comin' on crooks
I know the strain of day to day

Busy, busy, everybody
I've seen the strangest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy, everybody
I know the strain of day to day

I shook up my world
And stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
(Might be, I sold the greatest of worlds)
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses built on quicksand
Because I don't compete
For nobody's place
Could make it any different

I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
If you could talk me down
I would not want for anything or anyone

I shook up my world
And stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses built on quicksand
Because I waste my time
In backstreet dealings
Give me nothing every time

I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy, everybody
I've seen the cruelest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy, everybody
This song is from the album "What Price Paradise".
