LEVEL 42 lyrics - Forever Now [Resurgent]

Billy's Gone

Original and similar lyrics
well I ain't come here to try to save you I don't want you to rescue me but you need a friend like a godsend it's plain to see I was watching you from my window from 'cross the street only yesterday you were pleading, he was laughing he drove away so it seems so out of place the smile upon your face it's the pain inside brings me to your door on the day after billy's gone so you tell me you barely miss him that you'll be cool now you're on your own but you can't tell me why you're waiting by the phone so many people say it's the smile gives you away it's the dreams denied brings me to your door on the day after billy's gone well I'll try to keep it simple if you need somebody there I've got all the love you're searching for and time enough to spare well you fulfilled your obligations and baby none could ask for more and you had good cause to hesitate come on and let your spirit soar well, I can't give if you won't take you've got to open up the secret door and as a matter of fact I'm not taking you back in time you'll know for sure after billy's gone after billy's gone, oh yeah

Subway

SHERYL CROW "Globe Sessions"
[Chorus] Do do do do, do do do do Do do do do, do do do do I was riding on the e-train I was whistling to the rhythm I was thinking about my live-in I was feeling pretty fine I asked the time Got a poke in the eye When I read the latest news How we can't believe he wore those shoes Should we have the man impeached Or should we shoot him in the foot Well you waste my time You waste my time Looking for two hundred ways to hang a guy [Chorus] Allegations Interrogations Investigations Then more taxation National past time is aggrivation I think I'll move out to a desert isle Just for a while To avoid all that's distracting Like newspapers and magazines Insipid propagandizing To tell me what a loser I've elected But you've neglected to tell the truth That your politics is tied around his foot And we too are dangling [Chorus Twice] Do you think that we are crazy Low I.Q., that we are lazy That we sit here watching sitcoms That we have no clue to what is going on Well you got that wrong Wait and see, the boom will fall The morning eggs will hit the wall And everyone I know will call To say that change is hanging in the air You'd best beware You'll wake up and average Joe is in your chair Just because he'd kinda like to do what's right But more cause all you politicians do is fight [Chorus Twice]

Athens Grease

PHIL VASSAR "American Child"
If you're headin' south on Georgia one twenty-nine Straight into Athens past the Clark County line There's an old Texaco right across From the Athens Woolworth Billy Joe Taylor's underneath that lift There ain't a car on the planet that he can't fix He swears on his chrome-plated ratchet That his heaven on earth Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty Georgia's never seen a man more at peace Than when Billy's got his hands in Athen's Grease Six days a week, he's a man on a mission He's the redneck Picasso of The manual transmission And the only man in town who can make Charlie Vincent's van go When the sun goes down And the day is endin' Billy's still rockin' with a rack and pinion Long as that boy's at work, well he's right at home Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty Georgia's never seen a man more at peace Than when Billy's got his hands in Athen's Grease Well, he's a rotatin,' lug nuttin,' Spark pluggin' good ole boy With his name on his shirt And Thelma Lou Taylor likes to hang out at the station 'Cause she loves to watch him work Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty Georgia's never seen a man more at peace Than when Billy's got his hands in Athen's Grease Yeah, Georgia's never seen a man more at peace Than when Billy's got his hands in Athen's grease Athen's grease, baby

It's Still Billy Joel To Me

WEIRD AL YANKOVIC
What's the matter with the songs he's singin' Can't you tell that they're pretty lame After listenin' to a couple albums Well, they all start to sound the same So he tried to change his musical style He tossed all his ballads in the circular file Then he found the punk sound Breakin' ground all around It's still Billy Joel to me What's the matter with the tune he's writin' Well, you know it's gonna be a smash It's so nice when you're a big name artist Doesn't matter if it sounds like trash Now everybody thinks the new wave is super Just ask Linda Ronstadt or even Alice Cooper It's a big hit, isn't it Even if it's a piece of junk It's still Billy Joel to me Woah, it doesn't matter what the critics say about him 'Cause he doesn't worry how they feel When you're record's sellin' millions and it's goin' triple platinum You don't worry 'bout your next meal 'Cause money is no big deal Maybe he should dye his hair bright pink And stick a safety pin through his cheeks Then he'd really fit the new wave image But he couldn't sit down for weeks Don't you know about the record business, honey You gotta be trendy if you wanna make some money Now everybody's sayin' that he sure sounds funny But it's still Billy Joel to me All right, Alfred Oh I can hardly wait 'til his next album Well, I'll bet it's gonna be the rage Buy a ticket to his next big concert Well, I wonder what he'll do on stage It might be disco and it might be the blues Or maybe even somethin' like the B-52's Just a handclap, finger snap Even if it's mindless pap It's still Billy Joel to me Everybody's sayin' that he sure sounds funny But it's still Billy Joel to me

Man Of Constant Borrow

Cledus T. Judd "Cledus Envy"
Uh yessir do you have Man of Constant Borrow by Cledus T. Judd No sir somebody's already borrowed it Constantly borrows everything I'm the man of constant borrow There's nothing I can call my own Some may try to say it's all stolen I prefer permanently loaned He's the biggest mooch we ever known SOLO My grass mowin Bot I've got no mower My neighbor won't let me use his I can't really say is though I blame him Kept it three years last time I did He thought for sure that it was his I need a ride down to the pawn shop Lend me the keys to your Corvette What do you mean you don't trust me I never not brought it back yet I don't think I could take that bet You know dang well (he's gone away) Well you may have heard of me Cledus T J-U-double-D Better known as the reining King of country parody Coming with a new style High profile When I'm on the mike well you know I'll get hog wild Comedian Extrodinaire A fat Eminem with the bleach blonde hair I know that you think I've got your chainsaw You can't find it anywhere I can't cut no wood Since way fore winter I gave it back to you last fair Check his garage it's probably there I sure could use a hundred dollars I'll gladly pay you back Tuesday I know that's what I said the last time You can't believe a word I say He has no plans to (really???) pay

Four Walls Of Raiford

LYNYRD SKYNYRD "Legend"
(Ronnie Van Zant - Jeff Carlisi) Well them four walls of Raiford, closing in on me Doin' three to five hard labor, for armed robbery I had two years behind, but I could not wait the time Everytime I thought about it, well I died some more inside And I had stripes on my back, memories that hurt For the only time I seen sunshine is when I hit the dirt Diggin' ditches for the chain gang, sleepin' in the cold Oh Lord please forgive me for I could not wait no more And I comin' home to see you Jesus Well it feels so close this time Please take mercy on this soldier From the Florida-Georgia line When they find me they must kill me Oh Jesus save my soul I can't go back down to Raiford I can't take that anymore Well these last few years behind me Oh Lord, have been so sad I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad Now they say I'm guilty, when they find me I must die Only me and Jesus know that I never stole a dime Well when Vietnam was over there was no work here for me I had a pretty wife awaitin and two kids I had to feed Well I'm one of America's heroes and when they shoot me down Won't fly old Glory proudly, put my medals in the ground And I comin' home to see you Jesus Well it feels so close this time Please take mercy on this soldier From the Florida-Georgia line When they find me they must kill me Oh Jesus save my soul I can't go back down to Raiford I can't take that anymore
