Justin Hayward – Billy lyrics

Billy left home one morning, he walked right out the
Door
He said goodbye to his former life, and he never came
Back no more
Oh billy... There's anger in your heart
Oh billy... There's madness in your eyes

He took his favourite handgun, with his rifle he felt
Free
He cleaned them all the night before, he was armed as
He could be
Oh billy... There s anger in your heart
Oh billy... There's sadness in your eyes

Cause it's a sad world, where there's no-one
Who can reach out, to the source of your pain
Yes it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
When only peace comes, at the end of a gun
Whoa.. Oh

He found the tallest building, like a bird's nest in the
Sky
He she'd a tear as he took his aim, at the people passing
By
Oh billy... There's anger in your heart
Oh billy... There's sadness in your eyes

Well it's a sad world, where there's no-one
Who can reach out, to the source of your pain
Yes it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
When only peace comes, at the end of a gun
Whoa... Oh

Before he pulled the trigger, he knelt as if to pray
And at the top of the church he will never be found
Since he took his life that day
Oh billy... There's anger in your heart
Ah billy... There's sadness in your eyes

Cause it's a sad world, where there's no one
Who can reach out, to the source of your pain
Yes it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
When only peace comes, at the end of a gun
Yes it's a sad world, when there's no-one
Who can hold you when you just need to cry
And it's a sad sad world when there's no-one
Who would care if, if you live or you die
And it's a sad world, such a sad sad world
It's a sad world
