Songtekst:

I drive home the same way two left turns off the interstate
And she’s always standing at the stoplight
On 18th Street
She could be a Sarah she could be an Emily an Olivia maybe a Cassidy
With the shaky hands on the cardboard sign
And she’s looking at me

Bet she was somebody’s best friend, laughin’
Back when she was somebody’s sister
Countin’ change at the lemonade stand
Probably somebody’s high school first kiss
Dancin’ in a gym where the kids all talk about someday plans
Now this light’ll turn green and I’ll hand her a couple dollars

And I’ll wonder if she got lost or they forgot her
She’s somebody’s daughter
Somebody’s daughter
Somebody’s daughter

Well did she give up wondering where the cars all go
And can she even tell that I don’t know what to say
So I just nod my head and wave
Well no one’s going to ask if she wants to be
Or why we’re both stuck here at the mercy of geography
Or whether it shines or rains

Bet she was somebody’s best friend, laughin’
Back when she was somebody’s sister
Countin’ change at the lemonade stand
Probably somebody’s high school first kiss
Dancin’ in a gym where the kids all talk about someday plans
Now this light’ll turn green and I’ll hand her a couple dollars
And I’ll wonder how she felt when no one caught her
She’s somebody’s daughter

Somebody’s daughter
Somebody’s daughter
Somebody’s daughter

Oh I don’t know the reasons why
I’m the one who’s drivin’ by
And she’s the one on the corner of 18th Street

Bet she was somebody’s best friend, laughin’
Oh back when she was somebody’s sister,
Countin’ change at the lemonade stand
Probably somebody’s high school first kiss
Dancin’ in a gym where the kids all talk about someday, someday
Now this light’ll turn green and I’ll hand her a couple dollars
Oh and I’ll wonder if she got lost or they forgot her
She’s somebody daughter
Yeah, yeah
She’s somebody’s daughter
Somebody’s daughter
