Lyrics of Billy Idol Songs

 

Billy Idol

PARADISE WEST

words and music by: Billy Idol/Tony James, 1979

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

A sixteen hundred packed with angry young men

Came burning down mainstreet

I touched the epiphone that hung on my hip

It knew the sound of my heartbeat

But turning the corner in a twisted heap

They pulled some bodies

From an upturned Ford

Some kid looked at me and said it's only life

Might as well use it while we're young

Might as well use it while we're young

 

I queued with some friends outside the ABC one

To see the killer with no name

Yeah De Niros so great, and you know last week

I saw the universe in flames

But it's always the same like Citizen Kane

Y'end up with nothing and you leave for home

Talking and kicking coke cans in the street

As Fu Manchu Looks on

As Fu Manchu Looks on

 

And I thought they must think I'm crazy

The things I'll see for fun

Then in my mind I saw the enemy

And I wasted him with my gun

 

I thought of my brother working Heathrow

Flying engines in the night

Learning every part he'll be through in years

When I'm signed on for life

Lying here waiting for a hero to rise

But a lazy man lies back instead

No one hears the young man when he's alone

Planning to kill someone

Planning to kill someone

 

And I thought it must be me who's crazy

The things I'll do for fun

Choosing poison to get to paradise

Paradise west one

 

And I thought it must be me who's crazy

The things I'll do for fun

Choosing poison to get to paradise

Paradise west one
