Keeping the Faith

Billy Joel2007年10月28日

歌詞

 

If it seems like I've been lost in let's remember

 

If you think I'm feeling older and missing my younger days

 

Oh then you should have known me much better

Cause my past is something that never

Got in my way

Oh No

 

Still I would not be here now if I never had the hunger

 

And I'm not ashamed to say the wild boys were my friends

 

Oh Cause I never felt the desire

Till their music set me on fire

And then I was saved yeah

 

That's why I'm keeping the faith

Yeah yeah yeah yeah Keeping the faith

 

We wore matador boots only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel

Iridescent socks with the same color shirt and a tight pair of chinos

 

Oh I put on my shark skin jacket

You know the kind with the velvet collar

And ditty-bop shades

Oh yeah

 

I took a fresh pack of Luckies and a mint called Sen-Sen

 

My old man's Trojans and his Old Spice after shave

 

Oh Combed my hair in a pompadour

 

Like the rest of the Romeos wore

A permanent wave Yeah

We were keeping the faith

Yeah yeah yeah yeah Keeping the faith

 

You can get just so much from a good thing

You can linger too long in your dreams

 

Say goodbye to the oldies but goodies

 

Cause the good ole days weren't always good

And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

Learned stickball as a formal education

 

Lost a lot of fights but it taught me how to lose O K

 

Oh I heard about sex but not enough

I found you could dance and still look tough anyway

 

Oh yes I did

I found out a man ain't just being macho

Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food

Drank a lot of take-home pay

I thought I was the Duke of Earl

When I made it with a red-haired girl in the Chevrolet

 

Oh yeah

We were keeping the faith

Yeah yeah yeah yeah Keeping the faith

Oh

You know the good ole days weren't always good

And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

Now I told you my reasons for the whole revival

Now I'm going outside to have an ice cold beer in the shade

Oh I'm going to listen to my 45's

 

Ain't it wonderful to be alive

When the rock 'n' roll plays yeah

When the memory stays yeah

I'm keeping the faith

Yeah yeah yeah yeah Keeping the faith

 

I'm keeping the faith

Yes I am

You know I'm keeping the faith yes I am

 

You know I'm keeping the faith
