Billy And The Kids (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin Nothing looks as bad After staying up all night And the cruel words that cut you down I never meant to write And what came out as anger Oh was a lack of self control Billy won't you hold me Once before you go Clever lies keep coming Some men never change I'm a hand that's raised in anger The blow that causes pain But I just can't be trusted with a bottle and a child Billy it's no wonder You say I've never tried Oh so leave me now Oh don't turn around It's the best thing you ever did But it's hard for me to say goodbye To Billy and the kids
