I was sat up on the train Staring out the window at the rain (aye) I heard this little lady must've felt the pain Ask her mum if the blazing sun'll ever shine again I felt ashamed, feel the same not her mother, though Nah, started to laugh got her son involved (aye) Mention the past like a running joke And told her without all the rain there's no stuntin' growth Close, ah, to everything and nothing, picture past the honeymoon and bluffing Where the wooden spoon is only cuffing Shorter the discussion but the roots can't manoeuvre out of nothing I've been suffering these dreamy days (ah) Remedy and lust don't hold any memories of us Rather hold you everyday until the memories are dust Yo, we only caught the train cause you know I hate the bus Never get enough
Born and raised Made attempts to crawl away Find a way to exist and hide your face, some relate Leave everything in yesterday
They ask about the bible I was reading Told them that the title was misleading, labelled it jerusalem But really it's for cooking middle eastern I could see your mind was changing with the seasons, shady for a reason (ah) They will start decreasing, leaving like the orange in the evening It was creeping through the clouds but now I'm proud to see the images releasing I just wish the little lady could've seen it but she was dreaming (ah) Reckon she's standing with her mum, saying to her "Look, mother, here's the sun", rooted in the moment 'til the memories are done So I sit and start to wonder on the woman she'll become Wonder if I'll have a son or a daughter Ones that I brought up never strong, never telling me to run Never tried to find a sum, tryna get it done Yo, I wonder if she'll ever be as clever as her mum, one
Born and raised Made attempts to crawl away Find a way to exist and hide your face, some relate Leave everything in yesterday Born and raised Made attempts to crawl away Find a way to exist and hide your face, some relate Leave everything in yesterday
"Man, we can turn back in a second So remember what I'm tryna show you This life can be good one minute And next minute it can turn bad So don't look down on nobody 'Cause that's how life can turn for everybody So remember it's love, everybody And I'm gonna look for life, for my time Thank you"

"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.
