Always a Woman - Billy Joel


When I heard this song, it reminded me of my "sweetheart". Every line of its lyrics describes her in so many ways. It's like a painting or a photograph that captured all the aspects that I liked and disliked about her. She isn't perfect but she almost perfected me. Except that she dumped me. That is the meanest way of saying it and she's mean too, but I liked her.

Weighing all her physical, emotional and spirtiual aspects, all her good attributes keep coming back. The bad ones do return but I laugh about them now because I am just glad those are her attirbutes that completed her. Without those, I wouldn't have recognize her, she would not have stood out from the rest of the women I've met in my whole life.

So to you, when you here Billy Joel sing this song to you, please imagine it to be me who's really singing.

Here is the lyrics:

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child, but she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth, but she'll never believe
And she'll take what you give her as long it's free
Yeah, She steals like a thief, but she's always a woman to me

She takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time
And she never gives out
And she never gives in, she just changes her mind

And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding
But she’ll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me

She's frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool
And she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you,
But she's always a woman to me

SHES ALWAYS A WOMAN - billy joel
