Two very, very Willow/Tara-ish songs, both by Billy Joel:


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

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

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

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

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

T: She's got a way of showin'
How I make her feel
And I find the strength to keep on goin'

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

T: She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around

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

T: 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 waits for me at night, she waits for me in silence
She gives me all her tenderness and takes away my pain
And so far she hasn't run, though I swear she's had her moments
She still believes in miracles while others cry in vain

It's all about soul
It's all about faith and a deeper devotion
It's all about soul
'Cause under the love is a stronger emotion
She's got to be strong
'Cause so many things getting out of control
Should drive her away
So why does she stay?
It's all about soul

She turns to me sometimes and asks me what I'm dreaming
And I realize I must have gone a million miles away
And I ask her how she knew to reach out for me that moment
And she smiles because it's understood there are no words to say

It's all about soul
It's all about knowing what someone is feeling
The woman's got soul
The power of love and the power of healing
This life isn't fair
It's gonna get dark, it's gonna get cold
You've got to be tough, but that ain't enough
It's all about soul

There are people who have lost every trace of human kindness
There are many who have fallen, there are some who still survive
She comes to me at night and she tells me her desires
And she gives me all the love I need to keep my faith alive

It's all about soul
It's all about joy that comes out of sorrow
It's all about soul
Who's standing now and who's standing tomorrow
You've got to be hard
Hard as the rock in that old rock 'n' roll
But that's only part, you know in your heart
It's all about soul

I've always loved those songs. All Billy Joel's ballads are beautiful, actually...

*purrs* yes, I love his songs. Those two are very very good.

One of the ones that still haunts me the most is "And So It Goes", especially the line "And you can have this heart to break"



"And So It Goes"

In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along

I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows.
