Billy's Gone
Album: Forever Now Resurgence - Artist: Level 42



 
(King/P. Gould)

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 saw it all from my window
I could hear it all trough the day
You were pleading, he was laughing
as 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

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

Yet itís a common situation
but you donít need more of the same
If itís after the fact, that he ainít coming back
then heís the one to blame

So you tell me you barely miss him
You'll be cool now you're on your own
So can you tell me why you were 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
we all need somebody there
And I've got all the love you're searching for
and time enough to spare
I fulfilled my obligations
and baby no one could ask for more
Let me give you cause to celebrate
come on and let your spirit soar
Now donít give up on give and take
you've got to open up your secret door
If itís a matter of fact, that he ainít coming back
in time you'll know for sure

Yeah yeah yeah

Donít give up on give and take
(After Billy's gone)
Open up the secret door
(After Billy's gone)
Itís a fact, no looking back
(Yeah yeah)
in time you'll know for sure

After Billy's gone
After Billy's gone, oh yeah
