Justin Hayward

He said goodbye to his former life, and he never came back no more
Oh Billy... There's anger in your heart
Oh Billy... There's sadness in your eyes

He took his favorite handgun, with his rifle he felt free
He cleaned them all the night before, he was armed as he could be
Oh Billy... There's anger in your heart
Oh Billy... There's sadness in your eyes
(refrain)
'Cos it's a sad world, where there's no one
Who can reach out, to the source of your pain
Yes it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
When only peace comes, at the end of a gun
Whoa... oh

He found the tallest building, like a bird's nest in the sky
He shed a tear as he took his aim, at the people passing by
Oh Billy... There's anger in your heart
Oh Billy... There's sadness in your eyes

(refrain)

Before he pulled the trigger, he knelt as if to pray
And at the top of the church he will never be found
Since he took his life that day
Oh Billy... There's anger in your heart
Ah Billy... There's sadness in your eyes

(refrain)

Yes it's a sad world, when there's no one
Who can hold you when you just need to cry
And it's a sad sad world when there's no one
Who would care if, if you live or die
And it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
It's a sad world
