Sleeping with the Television on – Billy Joel

Sleeping with the Television on – Billy Joel

Keeping in connection with my blog yesterday, I thought a little Billy Joel was fitting for today’s Sunday song. Plus I’ve been singing it since i posted my blog yesterday. Have a great day.

Sleeping with the Television on

I’ve been watching you waltz all night Diane

Nobody’s found a way behind your defenses

They never notice the zap gun in your hand

Until you’re pointing it and stunning their senses

All night long, all night long

You’ll shoot ’em down because you’re waiting for somebody good to come on

All night long, all night long

But you’re sleeping with the television on

You say you’re looking for someone solid here

You can’t be bothered with those ‘just for the night’ boys

Tonight unless you take some kind of chances dear

Tomorrow morning you’ll wake up with a white noise

All night long, all night long

You’re only standing there ’cause somebody once did somebody wrong

All night long, all night long

But you’ll be sleeping with the television on

You’re eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me

But your attitude is “don’t waste my time”

Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me

But you won’t hear a word ’cause it just might be the same old line

This isn’t really easy for me to say Diane

I know you don’t need anybody’s protection

I really wish I was less of a thinking man

And more a fool who’s not afraid of rejection

All night long, all night long

I’ll just be standing here ’cause I know I don’t have the guts to come on

All night long, all night long

And I’ll be sleeping with the television on

You’re eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me

But my attitude is “boy, don’t waste my time”

Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me

But I won’t say a word ’cause it just might be somebody else’s same old line

All night long, all night long

We’re only standing here ’cause somebody might do somebody wrong

All night long, all night long

And we’ll be sleeping with the television on

Sleeping with the television on

Sleeping with the television on
