James

Billy Joel

Lyrics

James, we were always friends

From our childhood days

And we made our plans

And we had to go our separate ways

I went on the road

You pursued an education

James, do you like your life

Can you find release

And will you ever change

Will you ever write your masterpiece

Are you still in school

Living up to expectations, James.

You were so relied upon, everybody knows how hard you tried

Hey just look at what a job you’ve done

Carrying the weight of family pride

James, you’ve been well behaved

You’ve been working so hard

But will you always stay

Someone else's dream of who you are

Do what’s good for you, or you’re not good for anybody, James

I went on the road

You pursued an education, James

How you gonna know for sure-everything was so well organized

Hey now everything is so secure

And everybody else is satisfied

James, do you like your life

Can you find release

And will you ever change

When will you write your masterpiece

Do what’s good for you, or you’re not good for anybody, James
