The Great Wall Of China - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

Advice is cheap you can take it from me

 

It's yours to keep 'cause opinions are free

 

Nobody knows about the trouble I've seen

 

Nobody's perfect mister nobody's clean

 

It cost too much and takes too long to find out too late

Some words are not heard 'til after they're spoken

 

Your role was protective your soul was too defective

Some people just don't have a heart to be broken

 

We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China

 

If you'd only had a little more faith in me

 

In lieu of diamonds gold and

Platinum reminders will still shine bright

 

All the king's men and all the king's horses

 

Can't put you together the way you used to be

 

We could have been standing on the Great Wall of China

 

You take a piece of whatever you touch

Too many pieces means you're touching too much

 

You never win if you can't play it straight

 

You only beat me if you get me to hate

 

It must be so lonely to think that you have only

Somebody else's life to live if they let you

 

I ain't too selective but it don't take no detective

 

To find out how fast your friends will forget you

 

We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China

 

Now all you're going to be is history

 

Help yourself it's all you can eat at the Empire Diner tonight

 

You coulda had class you coulda have been a contender

 

Charlie you shoulda looked out for me

 

You could have been standing

Standing on the Great Wall of China

 

This was not your calling just look how far you've fallen

I heard your story man you've got to be joking

 

Keep things in perspective this is my true objective

 

Why tear this heart out if it's only been broken

 

We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China

If you'd only had a little more faith in me

 

In lieu of diamonds gold and

Platinum reminders will still shine bright

 

All the king's men and all the king's horses

 

Can't put you together the way you used to be

 

We could have been standing

Standing on the Great Wall of China
