03. Busy Man

For The Sake Of The Call
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

I know a man named Billy
He's got almost everything
Three stories, two cars, one swimming pool
And some broken parts of an empty heart
And I'm thinkin'...

Billy, Billy, Billy, you're a very busy man
But you're running with your eyes closed
You could be missing life all along the way
And you'd never even know it
You're a busy man, Billy, Billy, you're a busy man
Just too busy man

You've got a lot of nice things there, Billy
But they've cost you more than you know
'Cause what is really worth, can you tell me
If you're gaining the world, but you're losing your soul
And I'm thinkin'...

Billy, Billy, Billy, you're a very busy man
But you're running with your eyes closed
Looks like you traded life for the things you have
Not the thing you really wanted
You're a busy man Billy, Billy, you're a very busy man
Just too busy man

So when the day is over
And the lights go out
Do you ever stop and wonder,
Wonder what it's all about
Wonder what it's all about
Wonder what it's all about
Hey, Billy, do you ever wonder
What it's all about?

Billy, Billy, Billy, you're a very busy man
But you're running with your eyes closed
You could be missing life all along the way
And you'd never even know it
You're a busy man, Billy, Billy, you're a busy man
Just too busy man

Slow down, busy man, take a look around you
When it's all said and done tell me what's it gonna come to
