It's her first night on the town, since she was just eighteen A lady down on love and out of hopes and dreams The ties that once bound her now are broke away And she's like a baby, just learning how to play
She never thought that love could ever end so soon Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon When he asked her to marry and she gladly said O.K And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday
Now she's a lady down on love She needs somebody to gently pick her up She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound To a man who would love her and never let her down
Well, I know the lady that's down on her love 'Cause I used to hold her and have that special touch But work took me a way from home late at nights And I wasn't there when she turned out the lights Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust And she just couldn't live with a man she couldn't trust
Now she's a lady down on love She needs somebody to gently pick her up She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound To man who would love her and never let her down Now she's a lady down on love

"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
