​Rushing To

This song is by Ashford & Simpson and appears on the album A Musical Affair (1980).

Where's everybody going
Where's everybody rushing to?

People in the street shouting loud
But where's the crowd rushing to
It's hard to say or figure out
Just what is it they fear
They don't want to stay here

Turn the light on
Turn the light on, so we can see
So we can see
So we can see what we're rushing to

I want to know, how about you
Where's everybody rushing to?
Somebody tell me what we're doing
Rushing to
Won't somebody tell me? How about you?

Just the other day
A friend I knew couldn't say hello
He was rushing to
Everything I read makes it hard to conceive
What we're rushing to
I can't begin to imagine what the end will unfold
It's out of control

Rushing to
I want to know, how about you
Somebody tell me what we're doing
Rushing to
I want to know, how about you

Is the sky falling
Do I hear, do I hear somebody calling
Somebody pointing, somebody pointing towards a sign
Does it say happiness
Happiness is at the end of the line

What is this madness
This madness that makes us so blind
I don't know
But your guess is as good as mine

What we're rushing to
I'd like to know, how about you?
What are we doing
Where are we going
Rushing to
It's too far for me to see
How about you

Rushing to
I just want to know
How about you
I just can't figure it out
Rushing to
People just running all about

Rushing to
I want to know, how about you
It's all so mixed up right now
Rushing to
Can't even stop to say hello
I'm getting sick and tired of it
Can we put a stop to it

Turn the light on
Turn the light on, so we can see
So we can see

Turn the light on, turn the light on
I want to know
Where's everybody rushing to?
