I feel good and sad at the same time! The tune's great but is still a sad song.

cable Billy Joel knocked off the unbelievable concept that Jesus loves us as we are for mysterious inexplicable reasons when he elsewhere sang "don't go changing to try to please me...I love u just the way u are"...if one of his "thorns" was trying unconditiona l love on a WOMAN and he failed, may he refill his cup NOT BY SEEKING FIRST another girl, but to let Christ fill HIS cup up, so he can SHARE...

Can't relate to line "til another comes along" - feel male - female love is a bigger investment than veto think another "buy" opportunity will just saunter by soon. But it IS a more thoughtful Bill Joel than the one who wished to seduce "Virginia" - just "'cause Catholic girls start much too late..." - he's been hurt, so now there is hope for him...

Could not believe this was Billy J

Love this song, Personally I don't relate to lyrics, what I related to was the heartfelt truth that came across in his voice, the music itself. You could feel his pain in his story, struggle of love, heartbreak. He is a very passionate sensitive energetic musician, person, that comes through in all of his songs.

Billy Joel fan, but this isn't a classic. I'd call this one only fair.

Usual Billy Joel greatness.

If the lyrics of Billy Joel's songs were all in one book, I think it would be the best advice book ever written!

The crisp, full piano chords echoing every breathy note he sings are truly brilliant complements to each other. Fantastic song.
