​Tourist

This song is by RAC and appears on the album Don't Talk To - EP (2013) and on the album Strangers (2014).

Am I the tourist on your street?
Outside the cafes where the thirty-pluses meet
And talk about the weather
And things that you should see

Am I the tourist on your street?

All day, every other day
(All day, every other day)
Outside the coffee shops where twenty-somethings play
And talk about whatever
And life without TV

Am I the tourist?
Am I the tourist on your street?

'Cause when it comes to conversation
He always plays it safe
And if he's always in the open
He always plays it cool

Am I another passerby?
Outside your apartment on another Tuesday night
You sleep a little better
When something's on TV

Am I the tourist on your street?

All the time we hang around
(All day, every other day)
Give bad directions to the kids from out of town
And now we are strangers
The kind that never meet

So I'm the tourist on your street

'Cause when it comes to conversation
He always plays it safe
And if he's always in the open
He always plays it cool

So what are you up to these days?
What are you up to now?
My other friends have all moved out of town
Are we strangers forever, or are we strangers for now?

'Cause when it comes to conversation
He always plays it safe
But if he's always in the open
He always plays it cool
