Billy Joel - James
Tekst en muziek: Billy Joel
(1976)






James
We were always friends
From our childhood days
And we made our plans
And we had to go our separate ways
I went on the road
You pursued an education



James
Do you like your life
Can you find release
And will you ever change
Will you ever write your masterpiece
Are you still in school
Living up to expectations
James



You were so relied upon
Everybody knows how hard you tried
Hey, ah, look at what a job you’ve done
Carrying the weight of family pride



James
You’ve been well behaved
You’ve been working hard
But will you always stay
Someone else’s dream of who you are
Do what’s good for you
Or you’re not good for anybody
James



I went on the road
You pursued an education
James



How you gonna know for sure
Everything was so well organized
Hey, ah, now everything is so secure
And everybody else is satisfied



James
Do you like your life
Can you find release
Will you ever change
When will you write your masterpiece
Do what’s good for you
Or you’re not good for anybody
James
