Almost Lucy

This song is by Al Stewart and appears on the album Time Passages (1978).

Original video
Lucy worked a different club every day
Though she put her mind to it, her heart was never in it
She stayed around just long enough to get paid
She won't pass the time with you, she can't stay a minute

And all these changing faces never bothered her at all
They just existed like a backdrop or a pattern on the wall
Lucy looks like someone who is waiting for a call
She knows he'll come but no one else can hear at all

Lucy finds the dressing room and the bar
Hangs her clothes up, hopes tonight the contract won't be broken
They kick you 'round so much when you're not a star
Make you play all night just for a pittance or a token

But all these imperfections never bothered her at all
She says it sharpens your perception when your back's against the wall
There's something that enables her to rise above it all
To shrug it off just when it seems to go too far

I think you almost feel the pain coming on inside
I think you almost feel it now and you don't know why
You don't know why

The last time that I saw her she had given up the chase
Moved away to California, got a suntan on her face
She said that life was just another time, another space
It's over now, she learned a lot, it's not a waste

I think you almost feel the pain coming on inside
I think you almost feel it now and you don't know why

I think you almost feel yourself reaching out inside
I think you almost feel it now and you don't know why
You don't know why
