Lyrics

Famous Last Words Album Version-Billy Joel

 

Sitting here in Avalon looking at the pouring rain

 

Summertime has come and gone and everybody's home again

 

Closing down for the season I found the last of the souvenirs

 

I can still taste the wedding cake and it's sweet after all these years

 

These are the last words I have to say

That's why this took so long to write

 

There will be other words some other day

 

But that's the story of my life

 

There's comfort in my coffee cup and apples in the early fall

 

They're pulling all the moorings up and gathering at the Legion Hall

 

They swept away all the streamers after the Labor Day parade

 

Nothing left for a dreamer now only one final serenade

 

And these are the last words I have to say

 

Before another age goes by

 

With all those other songs I'll have to play

 

But that's the story of my life

 

And it's so clear standing here where I am

 

Ain't that what justice is for

 

Frankly my dear I don't give a damn anymore

 

Stack the chairs on the table tops

Hang the sheets on the chandeliers

 

It slows down but it never stops

Ain't it sweet after all these years

 

And these are the last words I have to say

 

It's always hard to say goodbye

 

But now it's time to put this book away

 

Ain't that the story of my life
