Song Lyric Sunday – She’s Always a Woman by Billy Joel

There’s just something about Billy Joel on a Sunday afternoon, isn’t there? I love his artistry, his lyrics and he is most definitely a master on the piano. This is the song my son played in the car the other day and I just couldn’t get it out of my head.

I’m assuming you all know and love this song, but it’s always fun to listen to old favorites. I do hope you enjoy!

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 you
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
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, 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 brings out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself ’cause she’s always a woman to me
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, 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
But 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
Songwriters: Billy Joel

  1. I don’t know how I missed this last week – well it was a heck of a week. I love Billy Joel and this is definitely one of his best. Thanks for sharing it. I got a four disk set of his music as a gift one Christmas from my sister. The fourth disc was all live Q&A’s at various Universities. People would ask him a question about a particular song (did he ever forget the lyrics to We Didn’t Start the Fire? – yes), and would then perform it. I think I have almost worn that one out!
