Billy Joel en Tokyo 2006 SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN TO ME


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 as it’s free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she’s always a woman to me

CHORUS:
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–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 bleedin’
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
–Mhmm–

Bridge

CHORUS:
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is 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
–Mhmm–

 

Quotation of the Day: Francis Bacon – How to Paradise (on Paradise Lost)


The desire of power in excess caused the angels to fall; the desire of knowledge in excess caused man to fall.

Francis Bacon (1561-1626) Discuss

My take on this: The Garden of Eden might have been a place of bliss (ignorant of Power and Knowledge.) What good are they both if they displace you from your natural place: The fruits of power and knowledge are deemed to fall out of grace and loose it.
