Song Lyrics

So this is a song that Joey Ramone loved
They played it to him when he was lying
In his hospital bed a couple of months back

It was the last song Joey Ramone heard in his life here
And… that’s an amazing thing for somebody
Who grew up as a fan of Joey Ramone I can tell you that

Anyway, Joey turned this… song about a hangover
Into a, gospel song I think
‘Cause that’s the way I always hear it now
For Joey Ramone’s… ears

In a little while
Surely you’ll be mine
In a little while I’ll be there
In a little while
This hurt will hurt no more
I’ll be home, love

When the night takes a deep breath
And the daylight has no air
If I crawl, if I come crawling home
WiIl you, be there?
(Check now)

(S’alright)
(Checking in my soul)
In a little while
I won’t be blown every breeze
Friday night running
To Sunday on my knees

That girl, that girl
She’s mine
Well I’ve know her since

Since she was a little girl
With Spanish eyes
Oh, when I saw her
In a pram they pushed her by

My, how you’ve grown
Well it’s been
It’s been a little while

Man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocket ship into the skies
He lives on a star that’s dying in the night
And follows in the trail
The scatter of light

You turn me on
You turn me on
(Funky child)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Shine it in now)
Slow down my beating heart
Slowly love, slowly love
Slow down my beating heart
Slowly love, slowly love
Slow down my beating heart
Slowly love, slowly love

This is a family business
I’d like to uh… to introduce you to the uh…

The scientist in the family
A man who, who takes sexual pleasure in the collection of data
Wearing the number seven shirt this evening
Even his mother calls him “The Edge”

On security, the bodyguard of the band
The man who gave us our first job
And… keeps us in our first job
On the drums, Larry, Mullen, Junior…
(Come on)
Come on down

The jazz man, the musical conscience of the… of the family
The man whose instrument holds
Mysterious powers over womanfolk
The poshest member of U2
Adam Clayton y’all

(Alright)

Lemme, I’m the blind ambition of the band, that’s my job
You need to be blind sometimes
Ya know what I’m saying?
