Song Lyrics For Keeping The Faith by Billy Joel


Billy Joel


If it seems like Iíve been lost in letís remember
If you think Iím feeling older and missing my younger days
Oh, then you should have known me much better
Cause my past is something that never got in my way
Oh no
Still I would not be here now if I never had the hunger
And Iím not ashamed to say the wild boys were my friends
Oh, ĎCause I never felt the desire Ďtil their music set me on fire
And then I was saved, yeah
Thatís why Iím keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, keeping the faith
We wore matador boots
Only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel
Iridescent socks with the same color shirt
And a tight pair of chinos
Oh, I put on my shark skin jacket
You know the kind with the velvet collar
And ditty-bop shades, oh yeah
I took a fresh pack of Luckies and a mint called Sen-Sen
My old manís Trojans and his Old Spice after shave
Oh, I combed my hair in a pompadour
Like the rest of the Romeos wore a permanent wave, yeah
We were keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, keeping the faith
You can get just so much from a good thing
You can linger too long in your dreams
Say goodbye to the Oldies But Goodies
Cause the good ole days werenít always good
And tomorrow ainít as bad as it seems
Learned stickball as a formal education
Lost a lot of fights but it taught me how to lose O.K.
Oh, I heard about sex but not enough
I found you could dance and still look tough anyway, oh yes I did
I found out a man ainít just being macho
Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food
Drank a lot of take-home pay
I thought I was the Duke of Earl
When I made it with a red-haired girl in the Chevrolet
Oh yeah, we were keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, keeping the faith
You know the good ole days werenít always good
And tomorrow ainít as bad as it seems
Now I told you my reasons for the whole revival
Now Iím going outside to have an ice cold beer in the shade
Oh, Iím going to listen to my 45ís
Ainít it wonderful to be alive
When the rock Ďní roll plays, yeah
When the memory stays, yeah
Iím keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, keeping the faith
Iím keeping the faith, yes I am
You know Iím keeping the faith, oh yes I am
You know Iím keeping the faith, oh you are
(FADE: You know Iím keeping the faith, oh yeah...)
