Tony Carey – Everything You've Got lyrics

Somebody called me last week
Said they'd seen you
You were back in town
And so I went downtown,
I walked and walked and looked and looked
And didn't see you anywhere
But this is a big city
With lots of places to hide,
And I want you to know that I still care
And you can still come home...

I think we grew up in a fairytale
Skies were the limit, well how could we fail
You'd go to college I would sing my songs
You'd call me up collect and say
"Hey, how you gettin' on"
How much you missed me
And you promised me it wouldn't take long

I remember the day when it all turned round
You came to stay and you where different somehow
You had a secret, it was in your eyes
I couldn't reach you, baby
No matter how I tried
I watched you slip away without a sound

And the street was always there
It was just waiting
It's so much stronger than we thought
And the wollf don't lie with the lamb
Unless he wants something
He wants everything you've got

And it's real hard for me
To think of you that way
As a junkie - down there with all the other junkies.
I remember walking down the streets
Staring straight ahead
So we wouldn't see the people
Sleeping on the streets
But now it seems
I'm looking down there all the time
Looking for you...

I should have seen just what was happening here
The way you looked it should have been so clear
I always thought you were the strong one
I always thought I was the fragil one
When you were calling my name
I could not hear

And the street was always there
It was just waiting
It's so much stronger than we thought
And the wolf don't lie with the lamb
Unless he wants something
He wants everything you've got

And you hear stories about people
Coming back - cleaning up -
So maybe it does happen.
And until they call me down to identify you
Some time - some night
I guess I'll just believe
That you might be around the next corner
Waiting for me.
And I'll keep looking...
