brand new song written about Elvis

Fri Jun 20, 2003 5:20 pm

Hiya, I am a singer songwriter from near London, and I have just recorded a song I wrote about Elvis, which people seem to be really liking and think is quite poignant. Being a massive fan myself, I know what people on this board are like and I was wondering if I should put up the lyrics as I am sure people will analyse it too much and all that...but what the heck...here they are. If you like it and would like a copy (it is an acoustic based song, just me, guitar and voice) then get in touch, I can get one at cost for Elvis fans. My email is andy@andystedman.net and my website is http://www.andystedman.net Thanks for your time and thanks for all the great messages on here that make my day go quicker...

Any comments would be most appreciated :-)

"Boy Who Saved The World"

Did you hear about the boy who saved the world
But he couldn't save himself when he lost his girl
His face was known by everyone
His country's favourite son
But life ain't ever that easy for anyone

I knew his face as well as my own
His home was never really his home

And now he sits alone and he thinks of better days
When rock n roll was the latest craze
And life was fast and young
And each time he stares into his mirror pane
His bloated face shows the price of fame
And glory long since gone

The answers he was searching for
The hangers on who always wanted more
The image that he carved it seems
Trapped that boy of a man in his American dream

And now I sit alone and I picture those glory days
The out-stretched arms and the teenage craze
Long before my time
And every song he sang touched a different part of me
He was everything that I wanted to be
When I was a child
When I was a child

So did you hear about the boy who saved the world
But he couldn't save himself
When he lost his girl
Did you hear about the boy who saved the world
But he couldn't save himself
Couldn't save himself...

Good lyrics..
The only thing I would change without hearing the tune is
His house was never really his home
