i love this song [23 Aug 2004|03:28pm]
[ mood | content ]
[ music | Piano Man -- Billy Joel ]

Song: Piano Man
Artist: Billy Joel

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says "Son can you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes,
but it's sad and it sweet and I knew it
complete when I were a younger man's clothes."

Bridge: la la didi daa
la la didi daa
daa dum

Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
We're all in the mood for a melody
and you've got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
he gets me my drink for free
and he's a quick with a joke
or to light up your smoke
but there's someplace that he'd rather be

He says "Bill, I believe this is killing me,"
as the smile ran away from his face
"well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
if could get out of this place."

Bridge

Now paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davey who's still in the Navy
and probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
as the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
but it's better than drinking alone

Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
We're all in the mood for a melody
and you've got us feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for awhile

And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say "Man, what are you doing here?"

Bridge

Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
We're all in the mood for a melody
and you've got us feeling alright

[ music | The Way You Like It -- Adema ]

at home doing absolutely nothing today.

and id give it all away just for one more day with you
id give up everything for you to love me like i love you

its the feeling of happiness you get when he's with you
thats makes you think no one will ever love him like i do
its the painful feeling you get when time is up he says goodbye
that makes you realize pain is everything without him by your side

and your the reason i still breath
the reason why ive held on for
so long the reason why my story
has not yet and ending the reason
why im still here

for all of you that didnt believe in me that said it couldnt be done
i did it for those of who said dreams were a game that id lose well
guess what i won. and for those of you who said that we'd never
make it. i guess you were wrong because we're still here and still
strong.

tears masked by fake smiles
eventually break through
i drift off and fade for awhile
all because i miss you

you claimed you never said any of those things
but those guilty eyes of yours told me everything

When i looked into your eyes there was nothing there to see.
Nothing but my own mistakes staring back at me.
You reached out for me and I stood as I watched you fall.
And all the pain and everything your going through i know is all my fault.

[all of this was writin by me]
