Just The Way You Are
Billy Joel, 1977

Don't go changing,
to try and please me.
You never let me down before.
Don't imagine
you're tao familiar.
And I don't see you anymore.
I would not leave you
in times of trouble.
We never could have come this far.
I took the good times.
I'll take the bad times.
I'll take you just the way you are.
I need to know that you will always be
the same old someone that I knew.
What will it take till you believe in me
the way that I believe in you.

Don't go trying
some new fashion.
Don't change the color of your hair.
You always have my
unspoken passion.
Although I might not seem to care.
I don't want clever
conversation.
I never want to work that hard.
I just want someone
that I can talk to.
I want you just the way you are.
I need to know ...

I said I love you
and that's forever.
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you
any better.
I love you just the way you are.
I don't want clever
conversation.
I never want to work that hard.
I just want someone
that I can talk to.
I want you just the way you are.
