The Lyrics Are Below

 

Billy Joel

Getting Closer

 

 

 

I went searching for the truth

But in my innocence I found

All the con men and their acrobats

Who stomped me in the ground

If I count up their percentages

I know they're getting rich

But they haven't taken everything

Those paybacks are a bitch

 

Though I've lost quite a lot

I am still in control

They can keep what they've got

But they can't have my soul

And if I don't have this all worked out

Still I'm getting closer, getting closer

I still have far to go no doubt

But I'm getting closer, getting closer

 

What was ripped off by professionals

Is not all that it seems

While I must live up to contracts

I did not give up my dreams

If I see it as experience

It hasn't gone to waste

Lately all the missing pieces

Have been falling into place

 

And if I could go back and start over somehow

I would not change that much

Knowing what I know now

Thought there have been sins

I will regret

Still I'm getting close, getting closer

I don't have all the answers yet

But I'm getting closer, getting closer

 

I'm a mark for every shyster

From Topanga to Berlin

And I should have learned to kick them out

As soon as they crawled in

So to every bank in Switzerland

That stores my stolen youth

I'm alright because despite the laws

You cannot hide the truth

 

And although you will say

I am still too naive

But I have not lost faith

In the things I believe

 

And if I don't have a this all worked out

Still I'm getting closer, getting closer

I still have far to go no doubt

But I'm still getting closer, getting closer
