They say that these are not the best of times,
But they're the only times I've ever known,
And I believe there is a time for meditation in cathedrals of our own.
Now I have seen that sad surrender in my lover's eyes,

    My all time favorite billy joel song by far, I've just been diagnosed bi-polar which may explain why every word billy wrote in this masterpiece has allways meant so much to me. Im a 38 year old male who breaks down in tears every time I here the first few notes of this song. In fact songs from the attic has a lot of meaning in my life. Miami 2017-is my first memory of my love of music Summer highland falls-my mental health Captain jack-my battle with heroin addiction And guaranteed leaking eyes from my joint favorite billy song - shes got a way This was the song we choose for my mums funeral and I've never seen such emotion in one place.

    The words really get me - a lot of thoughts are written into this. I like finding a newer version so that the 70's music accompaniments are gone, lol.

    Billy can put into words what everyone feels and don't know how to explain it.

    he puts the artists of today in the shade. I mean, give cheryl cole or little boots, pixie lott etc.... a piano and a micriphone and they would just crumble! Billy Joel is my idol! x

    utterly profound and wonderful, as it's either sadness or euphoria, and he's right
