Track Name: billy ruane
Billy Ruane (b.deily)

two-hundred-and-fifty ccs
rolling down Mass Avenue:
Citgo sign is flashing down,
tailight's barely hanging on--
you know and i know that it's been way too long--
where are you going, stranger? better hang on tight...

you know the dance is neverending--
you wanna see your friends tonight
that suit might need a cleaning--
but it's alright--

but the place just ain't the same without Billy Ruane
'cause he always knows your name, that Billy Ruane
and it's just a goddamn shame without Billy Ruane...
(and there ain't no one to blame,
but the place just ain't the same...)

dancing around in Kenmore Square,
down on Landsdowne every night--
staggering out of TT's
underneath a thousand stars...

the Channel is gone, and man,
the Rat closed down...
where are you going, billy?
where you riding now?

you know the dance is neverending...
i wanna see your face tonight--
that suit might need a cleaning--
but it's alright--

but the place just ain't the same without Billy Ruane
'cause he always knows your name, that Billy Ruane
and it's just a crying shame without Billy Ruane
(and there ain't no one to blame,
but the place just ain't the same...)

keep it loud, keep it raw...
the best-dressed drunk i ever saw--

(and there ain't no one to blame,
but the place just ain't the same...)
