Temptation – Billy Joel

I’ve got business to conduct And I’ve got places to go But I can’t help looking at her sleeping instead Another morning I’ll have trouble climbing out of this bed Because – she’s such a temptation It’s driving me crazy And it’s my fascination That’s making me act this way And I know what all […]

Shades Of Grey – Billy Joel

No doubts and nothing to fear, I claimed the corner on truth These days it’s harder to say I know what I’m fighting for My faith is falling away I’m not that sure anymore Shades of grey wherever I go The more I find out the less that I know Black and white is how […]

An Innocent Man – Billy Joel

If there’s a chance of it opening up They hear a voice in the hall outside And hope that it just passes by Some people live with the fear of a touch And the anger of having been a fool They will not listen to anyone So nobody tells them a lie I know you’re […]

Just The Way You Are – Billy Joel

You never let me down before Don’t imagine you’re too familiar And I don’t see you anymore I wouldn’t leave you in times of trouble We never could have come this far I took the good times, I’ll take the bad times I’ll take you just the way you are Don’t go trying some new […]

She’s Right On Time – Billy Joel

Cause baby’s coming home tonight I can hear her footsteps in the street Turn the choral music higher Pile more wood upon the fire That should make the atmosphere complete I’ve had to wait forever But better late than never She’s just in time for me She’s right on time She’s right where she should […]

Uptown Girl – Billy Joel

She’s been living in her uptown world I bet she never had a back street guy I bet her mama never told her why I’m gonna try for an uptown girl She’s been living in her white bread world As long as anyone with hot blood can And now she’s looking for a downtown man […]

Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) – Billy Joel

Savin’ his pennies for someday Mama Leone left a note on the door, She said, “Sonny, move out to the country.” Workin’ too hard can give me A heart attack You oughta know by now Who needs a house out in Hackensack? Is that what you get with your money? CHORUS It seems such a […]

The Downeaster “Alexa” – Billy Joel

And I’m cruising through Rock Island Sound I have chaartered a course to the Vineyard But tonight I am Nantucket bound We took on diesel back in Montauk yesterday And left this morning fromhe bell in Gardner’s Bay Like all the locals here I’ve had to sell my home Too proud to leave I worked […]

This Night – Billy Joel

I wasn’t ready for a romance Didn’t we promise We would only be friends And so we danced Though it was only a slow dance I started breaking my promises Right there and then Didn’t I swear There would be no complications Didn’t you want Someone who’s seen it all before Now that you’re here […]

Storm Front – Billy Joel

Off to starboard, daylight comes up fast Now I’m restless for the open water Red flags are flying fromhe Coast Guard mast They told me to stay, I heard all the information I motored away and steered straight ahead Though the weatherman said CHORUS There’s a storm front coming (mood indigo) White water running and […]

Sometimes A Fantasy – Billy Joel

I didn’t want to do it but I got too lonely I had to call you up in the middle of the night I know it’s awful hard to try to make love long distance But I really needed stimulation Though it was only my imagination It’s just a fantasy It’s not the real thing […]

Summer, Highland Falls – Billy Joel

But they’re the only time I’ve ever known And I believe there is a time for meditation In cathedrals of your own Now I’ve seen that sad surrender in my lover’s eyes And I can only stand apart and sympathize For we are always what our situations hand us It’s either sadness or euphoria So […]
