Keeping the Faith

Billy Joel1983年8月1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
