"Prodigal Blues" as written by and Billy Idol....
Riding my life
Like a run-a-way train
Moving from
One track to that
Howling, crying,
Screaming at the moon
Only my voice came back
Only the echo came back

When I was a boy
Daddy told me
Grow tall
Yes and Billy don't crawl
Taught me how to ride
Set me out on my own
And I never came back

And yes I'd do it again
Oh wouldn't you
Yeah I'd do it again
A-huh oh yeah
Do it again
Baby
Wouldn't you?

Remember
When I lied
Just when you
Needed me
Now I sit
Alone and cry
'Cause now I believe in mercy
Remember when I lied
Just when you needed me baby
I believe in mercy

Riding, walking
Looking so cool
Guess I crossed
Over the borderline
Treated like a dunce
Who just can't read
Did I fool me too?
And yes I'd do it again
Oh wouldn't you
Yes I'd do it again
Aha yeah I'd do it again
Baby
Wouldn't you

Remember
When I lied
Just when you
Needed me
Now I sit
Alone and cry
'Cause now I believe in mercy
Remember when I lied
Now that you
Needed me
Yes I believe in mercy

I said "Come here"
Look into my face
And hear into my heart
Hesitation
Could re-arrange
The other side
To your love
Take hold now baby
And take
What other
Lovers have not
Times is changing
Will they re-arrange

The other side to your love
No-woah woah woah
Yeah

Wooooo

(Come home
Here he is impatient one
Come home
Come home
Tell the story)

Come home
Here he is
The impatient one
Come home
To claim a glory
Prodigal son
Come home
Prodigal bum
Come home
Prodigal son
Prodigal son
Come home
To claim a glory
Prodigal son
Come home
Prodigal son
COme home
Prodigal bum
Here he comes
Yeah that prodigal son
Ooooh
He's the one
To tell his story
C'mon to tell his story
Tell his story
To claim his glory

    General Commenti really really like this song..
    it talks about him growing up and then becoming jaded
    right before he wrote this song he almost died in a motorcycle accident which can make you look back

    so it like i was innocent now im not i was jaded i understand but i had one hell of a life and id do it again
