Truth Is (billy won't you smile)

February 10, 2008 8:53 PM

This one I did for the musical version of NaNoWriMo (aka RPM). It's part of a planned concept album/musical (in the vein of Tommy or The Wall) called Comeuppance by my band Ready Demolition. This is the third demo I did tonight. Lemme know whatcha think.

(C Gruber)

Maybe I could tell you more
Tales of him from long before
Truth is I'm fresh out of lies
Truth is I'm starting to get wise

Billy, won't you smile?

Please just tell me what you mean
When you say you're no machine
Truth is you're making little sense
Truth is you're thinking of revenge

Well, I'm sure, young man, you're right; your passion is strong
You know everything and they're all so wrong
But life is not quite why you get so scared
And honesty like your is mighty rare

Maybe I could tell you while
Tales of him still make me smile
Truth is you're fresh out of lies
Truth is you're starting to get wise
