  • Lisa likes brandy and the way it hits her lips
    She's a rock 'n' roll survivor with pendulum hips
    She's got deep brown eyes that've seen it all

    Working at a nightclub that was called The Avenue
    The bar men used to call her "Little Lisa, Looney Tunes"
    She went down on almost anyone

    From the hard time living 'til the Chelsea days
    From when her hair was sweet blonde 'til the day it turned gray
    She said, "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    You've got more than money and sense, my friend
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    What you don't have now will come back again
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    Some people wear their history like a map on their face
    And Joey was an artist just living out of case
    But his best work was his letters home

    Extended works of fiction about imaginary success
    The chorus girls in neon were his closest things to friends
    But to a writer, the truth is no big deal

    From the hard time living to the sleepless nights
    And the black and blue body from the weekend fights
    He'd say, "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    You've got more than money and sense, my friend
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    What you don't have now will come back again
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    On my last night on Earth, I won't look to the sky
    Just breathe in the air and blink in the light
    On my last night on Earth, I'll pay a high price
    to have no regrets and be done with my life

    "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    You've got more than money and sense, my friend
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    What you don't have now will come back again
    You've got heart and you're going your own way"

    "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
    What you don't have now will come back again
    You've got heart and you're going your own way" Writer/s: CHARLES FINK
