She's Always A Woman

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 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.

This reminds of a sad time of my life. This song was popular when I separated from my ex-wife back in the late 70's. I felt like Joel had written this....almo s t as if he knew her. I would get emotional when hearing in the car driving...I eventually would flip stations. Oh how fast some of us get over things.
This song is ok but to me, the cheesiness factor just goes off the scales when he says she's ahead of her time. Who are we describing, Galileo??

It's alright

I hate to admit it but this is my song.
This song reminds me of when I was in high school. In theatre we used this song in Taming Of The Shrew. Miss those days.
Love Billy Joels music. Shame he and his last wife the fashion model broke up....
It is the best song
Not the best song but its good
To me its simoly awesone billy joels writes n sings beautiful n full of love
So sexy so very very sexy
Real nice love it
Think of all the women in my family!!!- LOVELY!!!
He's awesome!
It reminds me of me..

Actually, the lyrics were written as a cutting counterbalan c e to the sweetness of the melody -- which was written first. That was the consideratio n from a craft standpoint -- but im sure some truth about his first major relationship w his manager wife came out!
This song is very similar to Dylan's Just Like a Woman. Both great.
My all time favorite singer.!!
I will always be a fan
Great song from The Stranger which is a great album
Him my idol
A very early influence on me. It's what the informcials call Am rock. It's touching and thoughtful. Get your feelings off your shoulders. My Grandma's advice. It's a beautiful song
Not my favorite Billy Joel song, but I still love it!!!! That shows what a fan I am of his.

This was one the best ever written about the Beautiful Dark side of a woman.....wa y to go Billy Joel!
it's pretty.

I always thought Billy was talking about his first wife here, the one who was his manager for years. But I love the fact that it sounds like your cat. Now that I think about it, it sounds like my cat too.

Great song

She sounds like my cat. She cuts me carelessly then keeps playing. She steals my stuff. A hipster cat, ahead of her time. So much stuff in this song sounds like my cat.

Only the most passionate of women can accomplish the cruel cut; suddenly emerging with laughter that astounds and arouses.....
That is the most fun set of comments I have perused (no, I don't have a life). I agree with all of you, and none of you. That's what music is, and people are the same set of incongruitie s as this woman. Are any of us not "frequently kind and suddenly cruel"?

A different take on this song - it reminds me very much of a guy I had a major crush on my freshman year of college. He was so charming and I absolutely adored him, even though we never had a romantic relationship . So many lines in this song describe him perfectly, and our non-relation s h i p relationship . It's over 30 yrs later and this song still makes me think of him.
She's steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me
Hey Bevis Allene said "dich" hee hee.. Seriously Arlene if you ave problems with men that turn out to be jerks its on you. You pick toolbgs because your Dad either touched you or he never came home. Pretty simple.
I agree with Rick - this song is a tribute to an independent woman, not an insult! : )

boo
But she's always a woman to me
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She will 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

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
B
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 live
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
She steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her tim
Great song - great memories to go with it!
why does everyone think this song is insulting? Allene, i suggest you REALLY listen to the lyrics... he's saying that no matter what he or others might think of her, she's strong, she's independent, and she's confident. he's saying no man can take that away from her. this song is an absolute tribute to all women.
Sounds so sweet, until you really listen to how insulting he's being. No matter what else you might think about the song (far from my favorite of his, actually), it takes talent to pull that kind of dichotomy off.

Always a woman...til I see "her" Adams apple!!! Mediocre cut from a stellar album...
what are the lyrics?
always love hearing this song!
