I am Looking for a Soul

In my stirring state
I am restless for some calm
Will it come later or before I am gone

I’m looking for a soul
And an ear and an eye
To listen to the thoughts I have kept from my mind

I am looking for a soul
With an arm and a chest
To hold me close and tell me this will pass

I am looking for a soul
With a leg and a foot
To run with me in the city of New York

I am looking for a soul
With no sense of time
To stay forever young with me
To commit this crime
