C'est la vie Have your leaves all turned to brown Will you scatter them around you C'est la vie
Do you love And then how am I to know If you don't let your love show for me C'est la vie
In the night Do you light a lover's fire Do the ashes of desire for you remain
Like the sea There's a love too deep to show Took a storm before my love flowed for you C'est la vie
Like a song Out of tune and out of time All I needed was a rhyme for you C'est la vie
Do you give Do you live from day to day Is there no song I can play for you C'est la vie

"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.
