Billy Doo

Billy Doo writes love songs
in the dark and dreary night
then turns his face to heaven
to set the world aright
and laughter is a medicine
though he has none to spare
caught in an illusion
that’s as real as any snare
Billy writes of love and lust
and other passing dreams
but nothing is as it once was
and never was it seems
so get down on your knees he says
and lift your voice on high
pray with everything thing you’ve got
to a dark uncaring sky
and if your skin is hard enough
and if your luck is good
you might survive another day
though he’s not sure you should
but Billy Doo writes love songs
to the world that he once knew
for in the end there’s nothing else
that Billy needs to do
