Dreamed a long day Just wandering free Though I'm far gone You sleep nearer to me
If I could find peace If this night bleeds But I can't help myself
So I walk out These wandering dreams Of the north road Dressed gold and green
If I could lie still As that grey hill But I can't help myself
But it's calm and it's clear Collapsed here on the stone Delivered to this place A vision dark and cloaked
And those figures through the leaves And that light through the smoke And those countless empty days Made me dizzy when I woke And I live to see your face And I hate to see you go But I know no other way Than straight on out the door
And I can't help myself And I can't help myself And I can't help myself

There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
"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.
