(JUST LIKE) ELVIS IN VEGAS

(Richardson)

 

 

 

I saw you sittiní all alone in a roomful of hangers-on

You know I tried to get to you but your entourage wouldnít let me through

And you just sat there staring up above

What were you thinkiní of?

 

You couldíve had a brand new day, but

You lock yourself away, just like

 

Elvis in Vegas,†††††††††††††††††††††††† youíre just like

[Baby what happened to you?]

Elvis in Vegas,†††††††††††††††††††††††† youíre just like

[Baby canít you stand the truth?]

Elvis in Vegas,†††††† †††††††††††††††††††and itís so sad.

[Baby what happened to you?]

 

So this is how you fill the void, with the pills that make you paranoid

Baby, thereís no telliní what youíll find with a checkbook and a suspicious mind

Itís true, there used to be a softness in your touch

Now baby itís all too much

 

And you make it harder every day that you

Give yourself away, just like

 

Elvis in Vegas,†††††††††††††††††††††††† youíre just like

[Baby what happened to you?]

Elvis in Vegas,†††††††††††††††††††††††† youíre just like

[Baby canít you stand the truth?]

Elvis in Vegas,††††††††††††††††††††††††† and itís so sad.

[Baby what happened to you?]

 

There used to be a softness in your touch

Now baby itís all too much

 

Hey, when will I hear from you, on the telephone or the T.V. news?

Go on and do your midnight set and Iíll grieve for things that havenít happened yet

To you.Canít you hear me poundiní on the door?

Face down on the bathroom floor

You know we couldíve had it all, but the

Decadence, the demerol . . . .

 

Youíre just like ElvisÖ
