all Billy Joel lyrics



She's Got A Way
She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her

She's got a way of pleasin'
I don't know what it is
But there doesn't have to be a reason
Anyway

She's got a smile that heals me
I don't know why it is
But I have to laugh when she reveals me

She's got a way of talkin'
I don't know what it is
But it lifts me up when we are walkin'
Anywhere

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around

She's got a way of showin'
How I make her feel
And I find the strength to keep on goin'

She's got a light around her
And everywhere she goes
A million dreams of love surround her
Everywhere

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around

She's got a smile that heals me
I don't know why it is
But I have to laugh when she reveals me

She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her

You Can Make Me Free
You can make me free
You can make me smile
You can make me be
Like a little child

You can melt the ice that chills my body
You can dry my every tear
You make the lonely hours disappear

You can make me free
You can make me rise
You can make me see
So open up my eyes

Don't you know my only real moments
Are the ones I spend with you
How I long to drink some wine again with you

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with its heart full of song
Won't you color my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with his heart full of song
Won't you cover my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with his heart full of song
Won't you cover my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only tryback to top
Everybody Loves You Now
Baby all the lights are turned on you
Now you're in the center of the stage
Everything revolves on what you do
Ah, you are in your prime; you've come of age

And you can always have your way somehow
But everybody loves you now

You can walk away from your mistakes
You can turn your back on what you do
Just a little smile is all it takes
Yeah, you can have your cake and eat it too

Loneliness will get to you somehow
But everybody loves you now

Ah, they all want your white body
And they await your reply
Ah, but between you and me and the Staten Island ferry
So do I

All the people want to know your name
Soon there will be lines outside your door
Feelings do not matter in your game
Yeah, 'cause nothing's gonna touch you anymore

So your life is only living anyhow
And everybody loves you now

Close your eyes when you don't want to see
Stay at home when you don't want to go
Only speak to those who will agree
Yeah, and close your mind when you don't want to know

You have lost you innocence somehow
But everybody loves you now

Ah, you know that nothing lasts forever
And it's all been done before
Ah, but you ain't got the time to go to Cold Spring Harbor
No more

See how all the people gather 'round
Hey, isn't it a thrill to see them crawl?
Keep your eyes ahead and don't look down
Yeah, and lock yourself inside your sacred wall

This is what you wanted; ain't you proud?
'Cause everybody loves you nowback to top
Why Judy Why
Of all the people in the world that I know
You're the best place to go
When I cry, when I cry

I never asked for much before, not before
Things are changed; I need more
Tell me why, Judy, why?

I never thought that she would say
Say goodbye; but she did
And now I wanna die. I wanna die

I never thought that I would need, need a friend
But I did, in the end
Tell me why, Judy, why

Oh, what a scene
It's wrong for her to hang me up this way
Oh, where you been?
'Cause it's so hard to make it through the day

A man my age is very young, so I'm told
Why do I feel so old?
Tell me why, Judy, why?

Oh, what a scene
It's wrong for her to hang me up this way
Oh, where you been?
'Cause it's so hard to make it through the day

There's no tomorrow 'cause my dreams did not last
So I live in the past
Tell me why, Judy, why?back to top
Falling Of The Rain
Once upon a time in the land of misty satin dreams
There stood a house and a man who painted nature scenes
He painted trees and fields and animals and streams and he stayed
And he didn't hear the fallin' of the rain

In the forest green lived a girl who put her hair in braids
And she sang as she walked all around the wooded glade
She was glad when the rain came falling on her face and she sang
'Cause she didn't mind the fallin' of the rain

Will it always be the same as we recall?
Does it touch you when the rain begins to fall?
Ah, but I don't want to know and I don't want to see
Another rainy day without you lyin' next to me

High upon a hill far away from all the dusty crowd is a boy
With his eyes on the ground; his head is bowed; he is a fool
And his mind is filled with hopeless dreams and he waits
But he will not see the fallin' of the rain

Will it always be the same as we recall?
Does it touch you when the rain begins to fall?
Ah, but I don't want to know and I don't want to see
Another rainy day without you lyin' next to me

So now the boy becomes the man who sits and paints all day
But the girl with the braids in her hair has gone away
And it seems that time has brought things to an end; nothing's changed
'Cause you can't stop the fallin' rain.back to top
Turn Around
Oh, sweet lady, runnin' like a stream
You don't look back because you know your hands are clean
You make believe the past was just a dream
You make believe the past was just a dream

Turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too long

Oh, Elisa, you must begin again
And all the roads that you have walked are comin' to an end
I was your lover but I thought I was your friend
I loved you but I thought I was your friend

Turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too long

Oh, sweet lady, stand beside the sea
Maybe you will find a little time to think of me
Won't you please remember what I tried so hard to be
Yeah, remember what I tried so hard to be

So turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
And I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too longback to top
You Look So Good To Me
Ah, you look so good to me
With my eyes open wide, I can see
Ah, you feel so good to me
And it's so good when you're here 'cause I'm free

Feelin' the glory from that smile upon your face
It's liftin' me high above my ordinary place
And I am so happy when I'm in your warm embrace

Ah, you look so good to me
With my eyes open wide, I can see
Ah, you feel so good to me
And who knows what your next move will be?

Ah, you look so good to me
With my eyes open wide, I can see
Ah, you feel so good to me
And it's so good when you're here 'cause I'm freeback to top
Tomorrow Is Today
I've been livin' for the moment
But I just can't have my way
And I'm afraid to go to sleep
'Cause tomorrow is today

People tell me life is sweeter
But I don't hear what they say
Nothing comes to change my life
So tomorrow is today

I don't care to know the hour
'Cause it's passing anyway
I don't have to see tomorrow
'Cause I saw it yesterday

So I listen for and answer
But the feeling seems to stay
And what's the use of always dreaming
If tomorrow is today

Still I'm waiting for the morning
But it feels so far away
And you don't need the love I'm giving
So tomorrow is today

Oh, my. Goin' to the river
Gonna take a ride and the Lord will deliver me
Made my bed, now I'm gonna lie in it
If you don't come, I'm sure gonna die in it
Too late. Too much given
I've seen a lot of life and I'm damn sick of livin' it
I keep hopin' that you will pass my way

And some day if your dreams are leavin' you
I'll still believe in you

I don't care to know the hour
'Cause it's passing anyway
I don't have to see tomorrow
'Cause I saw it yesterday

Though I'm living and I'm singing
And although my hands still play
Soon enough it will all be over
'Cause tomorrow is todayback to top

Got To Begin Again
Well so here I am at the end of the road
Where do I go from here?
I always figured it would be like this
Still nothing seems to be quite clear

All the words have been spoken and the prophecy fulfilled
But I just can't decide where to go
Yes, it's been quite a day and I should go to sleep
But tomorrow I will wake up and I'll know

That I've got to begin again
Though I don't know how start
Yes, I've got to begin again
And it's hard

Well it's been quite a while since I lifted my head
And I'm sure the light will hurt my eyes
I see the way that I been spendin' my days
And reality has caught me by surprise

I was dreamin' of tomorrow so I sacrificed today
And it sure was a grand waste of time
And despite all the truth that's been thrown in my face
I just can't get you out of my mind

That I've got to begin again
Though I don't know how start
Yes, I've got to begin again
And it's hard
