Say it’s alright Joe,
I need another drink
To blow on the glass so I know I’m alive
Play me a song Joe
To fill the hours till morning
Then never again will I bother you
Ooh, Build myself a tower
No way in no way out.
Then my friends can visit me
Once in a while.
Say it’s alright Joe.
I need some reassurance
You never know what you might find in the night.
Ooh I’m just a busy bee, still alone in my hive,
I’m looking for some other world
To dream out my dreams.
There were Kings who were laughing in the rain
And they told me I’d come here to lead the parade
All the colours were changing, Yhe sky was in ruins
The lights are all shining on me and on you
Say it’s alright Joe
The night will soon be over
And nothing and no one will ever know.
Open my eyes Joe
I’d like to see the daylight
The clock on the wall says it’s time to leave.
Never seen the same face twice
Never walked the same way
The little love that I have known
I keep to myself.
If there’s a fire it’s asleep in my bed
I must leave it to burn until it burns itself out
Catch as you can I’m not staying here long
I’ll be coming back early or never at all
