Hey Bill (Written by Jef Joslin)

VERSE
Hey Bill
I’m sorry to hear of what you’ve done
And it sure as hell ain’t right but know you’re not the only one
And I don’t say it to condone but just to say you’re not alone
Cause I’m sure I’d have the blues
If all my sins were broadcast on the evening news

Hey Bill
How does it feel to have all fingers point your way
All the skeletons in my closet they asked me to convey
Their condolences and that they’ll stay inside another day
They were going to come out
Instead they said they couldn’t handle all the shame

CHORUS
Hey Bill
Has anybody told you that love you lately friend
In spite of all you’ve done I understand you’re just a man
Now a broken one alone with his heart in his hands
Oh but everyone deserves a little forgiveness now and then

VERSE 2
Hey Bill
I tried to explain you’ve probably got a hole
And you’ve tried to cover up all the emptiness you hold
But everyone’s too busy always trying to fill their souls
To recognize we’re all the same despite how many sins we own
But it’s easier to scapegoat and to shame
Than to admit we feel alone

Hey Bill
Thanks for all the laughs and for the love
The shadows of your past could never cancel what you’ve done
Oh your life has just begun all your cards are on the table
Was your hands and turn and run
Towards the Father that forgave you long before you came undone
