Billy Joel - Everybody Loves You Now
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.
