I live in an apartment complex
There are 835 units here
I don’t know my next door neighbor
Could be aliens for all I care
This is so very strange for me
As grew up in a different time and place
All had their own houses
Knew every name and face
Now I might pass someone on the stair
Might even sometimes say Hi
Been here going on thirty two years
Fond of the place, can’t lie
But I miss the companionship of neighbors I know
Of family being close and dropping by
We all knew each others problems and good times
Most of us saw eye to eye
Now, I’ve come to like my privacy
Nobody just dropping in
I’ve set some rules, call first
My house not as neat as a pin
Could I chose between what is old and what’s new
I don’t really think that I can
For I lived through the changes that have happened
The Universe has a plan
