You Can't Blame Louis
by Level 42



One small town boy whose dreams were higher
Thought up a plan
To be a city man
Out in the world
Bright burned the fire
Through every door
He was so sure

Than he ran into a problem
He heard the voice inside him say
"Do you believe that what you have is what you need"

You can't blame Louis
Oh, Louis

He found a girl
His heart's desire
She was the first
She quenched the thirst
His social whirl
Did not inspire
Her live divine
Soon lost its shine

Now he's counting every hour
Wondering where she spent the night
She doesn't slow, it seems he'll never know

You can't blame Louis
Oh, Louis

You can't blame Louis
Oh, Louis

Take a day and trace a thought to where it all began
Wondering how you felt at every turn
Even thought reality was not part of the plan
By reaching out you lit the spark forever

Louis thought he'd find the answer
In a world that has no soul
He moved on, to learn another song

You can't blame Louis
Oh, Louis
