Billy Joel - My life
Tekst en muziek: Billy Joel
(1980)






Got a call from an old friend, we used to be real close
Said, he couldn’t go on the American way
Closed the shop, sold the house, bought a ticket to the West Coast
Now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.



I don’t need you to worry for me, ’cause I’m all right
I don’t want you to tell me it’s time to come home
I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, leave me alone



I never said, you had to offer me a second chance
I never said, I was a victim of circumstance
I still belong, don’t get me wrong
And you can speak your mind
But not on my time



They will tell you, you can’t sleep alone in a strange place
Then they’ll tell you, you can’t sleep with somebody else
Ah, but sooner or later you sleep in your own space
Either way, it’s okay, you wake up with yourself



I don’t need you to worry for me, ’cause I’m all right
I don’t want you to tell me it’s time to come home
I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, leave me alone



I never said, you had to offer me a second chance
I never said, I was a victim of circumstance
I still belong, don’t get me wrong
And you can speak your mind
But not on my time



I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, leave me alone
Keep it to yourself, it’s my life
Keep it to yourself, it’s my life
Keep it to yourself, it’s my life
Keep it to yourself, it’s my life
