B.T.O. (Bachman-Turner Overdrive) - Life Still Goes On (I'm Lonely) Lyrics

Standin' in the street, shaved, I'm washed and neat
And the time is mine
But I don't even know where I'm goin'
Been too long in town, just workin' right tied down
But I've got my pay
And I'm willin' to spend all I'm earnin'
Maybe over town, where the say love can be found anytime of day
I'll be lookin' you know I've been wishin'
Need a lovin' face, nice hair, some fancy lace
Someone soft and warm
Then those nights spent alone won't seem wasted

Get me on down, get me into the place
Where the beat of the street, and the people you meet
Take the blues far away
'Cause I'm lonely, ya baby I'm lonely
And life still goes on where I'm goin'

Can you hear me now
Can you hear me I'm callin' for lovin'
Hear me
Won't you listen now
Can you hear me I'm callin' for lovin'

    Quem do Brasil gosta dessa banda maravilhosa. ...Eu

  4. atricio moreno

    Hands down BTO !!!!

  5. musicoldy the last Rock n Roller

    For my opinion one of the best albums of the band....i loved and still love the relax Rockstyle on this album and the versatility . And the courage to do a song like "Easy Groove", which i liked from the first moment. The album included one of the best songs from BTO ever, "Shotgun RIder", a perfect Rocksong, and I wonder why this song not become Nomber One in the Charts.

  6. Cristopher Lucero

  11. Silver Michaels

    It's overall a shit album, but this is a brilliant song.


    Sound quality is horrible on my LP. What did you think of Just for you?

    David MacGregor

    There's only this and the title track worth listening to on the "Freeways" album. The Randy Bachman compositions are dire to say the least. Randy drove a wedge between himself and the other band members, so Randy jumped ship to make his flop solo album "Survivor". In 1979 Randy and Tom Sparks formed "Ironhorse" who released a self titled album in 1979 and a 1980 album "Everything is Grey". Meanwhile BTO recruited ex- April Wine bassist Jim Clench and produced the albums "Street Action" in 1978 and "Rock & Roll Nights" in 1979.

  12. John Rasenas

    my favorite cut from this l.p.. I love c f turners vocals!

    musicoldy the last Rock n Roller

    For me it was "SHotgun Rider".

    Ronnie Dill Jr

    John Rasenas His Vocals rips a persons balls off.

  13. wolfcarcass

    Fred Turner is one of the greatest unsung rock vocalists, IMNSHO

  14. lezzliea

    I wasn't keen on the Freeways album when I first heard it, twenty years later I thought it was pretty good, certainly better than anything they did after Randy left, and I prefer it to Four Wheel Drive.

  15. Emperatriz Moreno

    mi adolescencia, I miss a lot

  16. Marco Antonio Goulart


  17. JollyMeanThinkies JohnsterTheMonster

    Freeways nearly did but still should have won the Grammy for album of the year back in '77.

  18. Kurt Cameron

    This song rocks..............

  19. JollyMeanThinkies JohnsterTheMonster

    C.F. Turner...nuff said!

  20. Art Burgos

  22. Lansing Michigan

    clueless "me generation" probably gave it the thumbs downLove this song especially the chorus at the end

  23. Scott Vance

    3 thumbs down are probably from dopey millennials who know shit.

  24. Theskybluelake

  25. michael stanich

    I know how it feel's to be lonely,but when I find the right people it get better and I deal with people all the time.

    Hey, this is a damn good CF Turner song anyway! And he's a very underrated bass player! He's pretty amazing really, watch later live videos.

    A Big Hug For Everybody In Little Rock.

  39. WarHog38

    Greetings from Little Rock!

    Looking at the LP again I see it was all written by Randy Bachman except this one song. This song was written by Fred Turner and Turner did the vocals on it as well. As you wrote, this was R. Bachman's last BTO LP until the last regroup LP in 1984. I have seen 1983 listed as the date for that last BTO LP? My LP jacket says 1984.

  40. Wilson Webster

    Thank you friend for the informations.
    Greetings from Rio de Janeiro!

  41. WarHog38

    The uploader is correct. This 6th LP was marked change in direction for BTO in style and commercially. I remember Randy Bachman in the early 70's made the statement that a Rock Band had a 5 year life span. His band fulfilled his prophesy. BTO made 2 more LP's after this 6th in this same style. Bachman by himself formed a new band in 1979 called Ironhorse which made 2 LP's. He re-teamed with Fred Turner and made 1 LP as the band Union in 1981 BTO reformed in 1984 and made 1 last hard rocking LP

  42. Lasse Olsen

    Why make these uploads with that bad sound quality?


    Having trouble with the original LP as well. Could be the master... :(


    But glad I'm not the only one!

  51. Wilson Webster

    Thank you friend for comment. I do agree with you.
    Freeways was much better.
    Greetings From Rio de Janeiro.
    Big Hug!!!

  52. rememberthecoop1

    Wilson, huge BTO fan here. I disagree with the assessment of Freeways. I hated Head On - that was the departure from the heavy, guitar-driven rock. I actually thought Freeways was much better.

  53. Wilson Webster

    Thanks friend for comingo to my channel.
    I'm sorry for the last 30 seconds.
    I should have watched before posting it.
    Greetings rom Rio de Janeiro.
    Big Hug!

  54. WarHog38

    Thanks for the upload and it's Great but it chops off about the last 30 seconds of the song.
