The Verdict

27 April 2016


The Verdict by Joe Jackson

Did you do me right?

Did I do right by you?

When I bare my soul it seems you do not hear

Can this be true?

Am I a fool to fight?

I could do just what you say

But I’m following my heart and that takes me another way

It’s not easy when there’s no one giving prizes at the end

Waiting in the wings

Wishing that the band would start to play

As the show begins

Wonder what the critics have to say



For the verdict

Some people live so fast

They’re so scared of getting old

Some people keep on working 

All they do is line their graves with gold

We don’t know what happens when we die

We only know we die too soon

But we have to try or else our world becomes a waiting room

Would you testify for me?

I think I’d do the same for you

Waiting in the dark

Waiting for the phone to ring all day

My witness disappears

Wonder what the jury has to say



For the verdict
