Billy Joel - Everybody Loves You Now

Your rating:
Baby all the lights are turned on you
Now you're in the center of the stage
Everything revolves on what you do
Ah, you are in your prime; you've come of age.

And you can always have your way somehow
But everybody loves you now.
You can walk away from your mistakes
You can turn your back on what you do
Just a little smile is all it takes
Yeah, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Loneliness will get to you somehow
But everybody loves you now.

Ah, they all want your white body
And they await your reply
Ah, but between you and me and the Staten Island ferry
So do I.

All the people want to know your name
Soon there will be lines outside your door
Feelings do not matter in your game
Yeah, 'cause nothing's gonna touch you anymore.

So your life is only living anyhow
And everybody loves you now.

Close your eyes when you don't want to see
Stay at home when you don't want to go
Only speak to those who will agree
Yeah, and close your mind when you don't want to know.

You have lost you innocence somehow
But everybody loves you now.

Ah, you know that nothing lasts forever 
And it's all been done before
Ah, but you ain't got the time to go to Cold Spring Harbor
No more.

See how all the people gather 'round
Hey, isn't it a thrill to see them crawl?
Keep your eyes ahead and don't look down
Yeah, and lock yourself inside your sacred wall.

This is what you wanted; ain't you proud?
'Cause everybody loves you now.
