Half A Mile Away

This song is by Billy Joel and appears on the album 52nd Street (1978).

Original video
Little Geo is a friend of mine
We get some money and we buy a cheap wine
Sit on the corner and have a holiday

Hide the bottle when the cop goes by
Talk about women and lie, lie, lie
Oh, my other world is just a half a mile away

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Wait for mama to turn out the light
Crawl on the roof and then I hit the night
I should be sleeping tonight but I just can't stay

I've given everybody so much time
Now I need a moment that's mine
Oh, my other world is just a half a mile away

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, it's just a half a mile away
Ooh, it's just a half a mile away
Ooh, it's just a half a mile away

Angelina save a place for me
I've been livin' someone else's life and now I've got to be free
Turn your transistor on and let the music play

I try to keep the family satisfied
But there's gotta be more to life than just try, try, try
Oh, my other world is only half a mile away

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, it's just a half a mile away
Ooh, it's just a half a mile away
Ooh, yeah, it's just a half a mile away

I've given everybody so much time
Now I need a moment that's mine
Oh, my other world is just a half a mile away

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
(It's just a, it's just a half a mile away)
Don't you know it's just a half a mile away

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
(It's just a, it's just a half a mile away)

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
(It's just a, it's just a half a mile away)
