My Life

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

ooh yeah
alright
ooh

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 alright
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 ok
you wake up
with yourself

i don't need you
to worry for me
'cause i'm alright
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
ooh
