"Come Back Billy Pilgrim" as written by Robert Buraas, Sivert Hoeyem and Frode Jacobsen....
She said, "Come back Billy, you have been away so long"
I go through burned out streets
And I've been away too long

I go walking with my hands slinging loose
I go walking in my velcro shoes
I go walking with the wind snapping at my heels
How do you think that feels?

You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close
You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close

She said, "Come back Billy, come back from wherever you are
I ain't got another set of lives for you
To string on to your guitar"
Well, I've been walking with my hands free
Skipping on the sidewalk, see
I've been walking with the wind snapping at my heels
How do you think that feels?

You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close
You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close

When my eyes close
When my eyes close
When my eyes close
When my eyes close

You're gonna need someone
You're gonna need someone
When my eyes close

You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close
You're gonna need someone
Need someone when my eyes close

When my eyes close
When my eyes close
Eyes close
