Billy Joel Everybody Loves You Now (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 09/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

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
‘Cause 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
And 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
Ah, U have lost your 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
Ah, this is what you wanted; ain't you proud?
'Cause everybody loves you now
