Level 42 Lyrics (compiled by Norm)
Billy's gone
(King/P. Gould)
----------------------

Billy's gone (Resurgence version) 

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
