Lyrics
TOMMY
(STEVE DAFOE 2006)
(COPYRIGHTED)



VERSE 1:

BEFORE THE DAYS OF NOW AS
POWERFUL IMAGES STILL REMAIN
HE WAS BARELY A YOUNG MAN WHEN
HIS HEART STOPPED IN THE DARK RAIN
A BEACON OF HOPE IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD


CHORUS 1 :

I STILL HAVE TO CLOSE MY EYES AND PINCH MYSELF TO
REALIZE THAT YOU'RE NOT HERE AND THAT YOU'RE REALLY GONE......

A LIFE SO BRIGHT, JUST A SHINING LIGHT, JUST A FRIEND TO ALL...
YOU COULDN'T OVERCOME...YOU JUST COULDN'T WIN THIS FIGHT

OH SO TOMMY....WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO?
OH TOMMY...THAT WAS THE DARKEST OF NIGHTS........


VERSE 2:
AS THE THUNDER ROLLED AROUND AND
ON ANOTHER DAY OF FOG AND DARK RAIN
GOD MAKES A CHOICE FOR HEAVEN AND OR HELL
THE SILENCE OF THE PAIN AND SORROW ONLY
BROKEN BY THE RINGING OF CHURCH BELLS



CHORUS 2:

OH OUR TOMMY TOMMY...WHY DO THE GOOD PEOPLE ALWAYS
.... ALWAYS HAVE TO GO?

YOU WERE MY BEST FRIEND AND YOU BELIEVED MORE IN ME THAN
I DID IN MYSELF.......

OH SO TOMMY........WHERE ARE YOU KNOW?
OH TOMMY........WHY THE FINAL BOW?



VERSE 3:

BACK THEN I COULD BARELY COMPREHEND LIFE
LET ALONE THE MAGNITUDE OF DEATH...
FOR HIM...NO FUTURE...NO DREAMS.....NO WIFE
THE MEMORY OF THE HORROR MEANT
TOMMORROW IS PROMISED TO NO ONE.....

Reviews

Hi! Love your song and your voice. Your voice is perfect for the genre with excellent pitch and dynamics. The lyric is quite good, also.

- Double Trouble

I really like the instrumentation and the vocal quality of this song. The lyrics are difficult to hear sometimes. Had to listen a couple of times to try and understand the theme. But I think it's about someone passing away and the feeling that someone close to them felt. I think the words could be arranged to tell the story clearer or in a more popular theme pattern. But I love the arrangement and the vocal production.
