Billy Joel

A Room of Our Own – Billy Joel

You’ve got diamonds and I’ve got spades
You’ve got pills
And I’ve got razor blades
You’ve got yoga honey
I’ve got beer
You got overpriced
And I got weird
But it’s alright
We’re the same even though we’re alone
It’s alright
Yes we all need a room of our own
You’ve got love darlin’
I’ve got sex
You’ve got cash, mama
And I’ve got checks
You’ve got business, baby
I’ve got the kids
You got crowded just the way I did
But it’s alright
Cause we all need a place to call home
It’s alright
Yes we all need a room of our own
I can still remember packed together
Like a can of sardines
No, no, no
Pushin’, shovin’
That’s when lovin’
Starts to come apart at the seams
Oh no, no, no, no
You’ve got the day shift
I’ve got nights
We go wrong at times
But we’ve got rights
You’ve got TV shows
I’ve got crime
But you’ve got your room, honey
And I’ve got mine
It’s alright
It’s the one thing that we should have known
Yes, it’s alright
Yes, we all need a room of our own
And it’s alright
Yes we all need a place to call home
It’s alright
Yes we all need a room of our own
It’s alright
It’s alright
To have a room of your own
No, no, no, it’s alright
Yeah it’s alright mama
To have a room of our own
Sometimes you’ve got to get away
Got to get away
Got to get away
Got to get away to a room of our own
Got to have a room
Got to have a little elbow room of my own.

A Minor Variation – Billy Joel

Some days I have to give right in to the blues
Despite how I try to keep fightin’
It’s a sure shot I’m going to lose
And I’ll tell you why
You think I’m crazy
It’s such a sad composition
But can you blame me
For what’s been causing my bad disposition?
Ain’t nothing new with my blue situation
And nothing’s fine, it’s just a minor variation

When troubles want to find me, I ain’t hard to find
They know where I am
Like a hungry pack of wolves when it’s feeding time
They tear up a man
And it’s a strange thing
“Cause now it don’t really matter
More of the same thing
Don’t even hurt it’s been part of the pattern
But still in all it’s a small consulation
I just define it as a minor variation

Ain’t now way to fight ’em darling
Ain’t no way around ’em baby
Ain’t now way to take ’em honey
Nowhere to hide and believe me I’ve tried to shake ’em

I’m getting to the point where I don’t feel the pain
And I’ve had enough
I’m ready for the next time it hits me again
“Cause I’ve gotten tough
It doesn’t faze me
And now I’ve made my decision
I may be crazy
It’s not as though I don’t know that condition
Until I’m through with this blue situation
Pass me the wine, it’s just a minor variation

Ain’t nobody’s business, baby
Ain’t nobody’s worry darlin’
Ain’t nobody’s problem
No way to win when you’ve already been forgotten

And it’s a strange thing
“Cause now it don’t really matter
More of the same thing
Don’t even hurt, it’s a part of the pattern
Until I’m through with this blue situation
Pass me the wine, it’s just a minor variation

A Matter Of Trust – Billy Joel

Some love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
And they may not want it to end
But it will it’s just a question of when
I’ve lived long enough to have learned
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned
But that won’t happen to us
Because it’s always been a matter of trust

I know you’re an emotional girl
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
I can’t offer you proof
But you’re going to face a moment of truth
It’s hard when you’re always afraid
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
So break my heart of you must
It’s a matter of trust

You can’t go the distance
With too much resistance
I know you have doubts
But for God’s sake don’t shut me out

This time you’ve got nothing to lose
You can take it, you can leave it
Whatever you choose
I won’t hold back anything
And I’ll walk a way a fool or a king
Some love is just a lie of the mind
It’s make believe until its only a matter of time
And some might have learned to adjust
But then it never was a matter of trust

I’m sure you’re aware love
We’ve both had our share of
Believing too long
When the whole situation was wrong

Some love is just a lie of the soul
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you’ve heard lie upon lie
There can hardly be a question of why
Some love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can’t happen to us
Because it’s always been a matter of trust

52nd Street – Billy Joel

They say it takes a lot to keep a love alive:
In every heart there pumps a different beat

But if we shift the rhythm into overdrive,
We could generate a lot of heat….

CHORUS
On 52nd Street
On 52nd Street

We’re gonna throw a little soul parade,
Before they know the second bar was played

We’re gonna slip it to ’em short and sweet

CHORUS

Vienna – Billy Joel

Slow down, you crazy child
you’re so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you’re so smart, tell me
Why are you still so afraid?

Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about?
You’d better cool it off before you burn it out
You’ve got so much to do and
Only so many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told..
That you can get what you want or you get old
You’re gonna kick off before you even
Get halfway through
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you’re doing fine
You can’t be everything you want to be
Before your time
Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight
Tonight,…
Too bad but it’s the life you lead
you’re so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you’re wrong, you know
You can’t always see when you’re right. you’re right

You’ve got your passion, you’ve got your pride
but don’t you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you crazy child
and take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
it’s all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize,..Vienna waits for you?
And you know that when the truth is told
that you can get what you want or you can just get old
You’re gonna kick off before you even get half through
Why don’t you realize,. Vienna waits for you
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

James – Billy Joel

James…we were always friends,
From our childhood days
And we made our plans,
And we had to go our seperate ways.
I went on the road-
You pursued an education.

James…do you like your life,
Can you find release,
And will you ever change-
Will you ever write your masterpiece.
Are you still in school-
Living up to expectations…James…

You were so relied upon, everybody knows how hard you tried-
Hey…just look at what a job you’ve done,
Carrying the weight of family pride.
James…you’ve been well behaved,
You’ve been working so hard
But will you always stay-
Someone else’s dream of who you are.
Do what’s good for you, or you’re not good for anybody…James.

I went on the road-
You pursued an education…James…
How you gonna know for sure-everything was so well organized.
Hey…now everything is so secure,
and everybody else is satisfied.

James…do you like your life,
Can you find release
And will you ever change,
When will you write your masterpiece.
Do what’s good for you, or you’re not good for anybody…James…

Half a Mile Away – Billy Joel

Little Geo is a friend of mine
We get some money and we buy a cheap wine
Sit on the corner and have a holiday
Hide the bottle when the cop goes by
Talk about women and lie, lie, lie
Oh, my other world is just a half a mile away.

Wait for mama to turn out the light
Crawl on the roof and then I hit the night
I should be sleeping tonight but I just can’t stay
I’ve given everybody so much time
Now I need a moment that’s mine…
Oh my other world is just a half a mile away

It’s just a half a mile away

Angelina save a place for me
I’ve been livin’ someone else’s life and now I’ve got to be free
Turn your transistor on and let the music play
I try to keep the family satisfied
But there’s gotta be more to life than just try, try, try
Oh my other world is only a half a mile away

It’s just a half a mile away

C’Etait Toi (You Were The One) – Billy Joel

Here I am again
In this smoky place
With my brandy eyes
I’m talking to myself
You were the one
You were the one

Here I go again
Looking for your face
And I realize
That I should look for someone else
But you were the one
You were the one

I’m looking for comfort
That I can take
From someone else
But after all
I know there is no one
That can save me from myself
You were the only one

Me revoici
Dans ce bar enfume
Avec mes yeux iures
Je me parle a moi meme
C’etait toi
C’etait toi

Me revoici
Cherchant ton visage
Et je realise
Que je devrais en chercher une autre
C’etait toi
You were the one

Je recherche l’affection
Qu’une autre pourrait me donner
Mais apres tout
Je sais qu’il n’y a personne
Personne qui puisse me sauver
Tu etais la seule

I’m looking for comfort
That I can take
From someone else
But after al
I know there is no one
That can save me, save me from myself
You were the only one
