A Matter Of Trust Lyrics

Some lovers just rely on their hearts Some love is just a lie of the heart
The core coldremains of what began with a passionate start
And they may not want it to end
But it will, it's just a question of when
I've lived long enough to have learned
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned burnt
But that won't happen to us
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust

I know you're an emotional girl
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
I can't offer you proof
But you're gonna face a moment of truth
It's hard when you're always afraid
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
So break my heart if you must
It's a matter of trust
It’s a matter of trust
You can't go the distance
With too much resistance
I know you have doubts
But for God's sake don't shut me out

This time you've got nothing to lose
You can take it, you can leave it, whatever you choose
I won't hold back anything
And I'll walk away a fool or a king
Some lovers love isjust rely on their minds
It's make believe until it's only a matter of time
And some might have learned to adjust
But then it never was a matter of trust


I'm sure you're aware love,
We've both had our share of believing too long
When the whole situation was wrong

Some lovers love is just rely on their souls
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you've heard lie upon lie
There can hardly be a question of why
Some lovers just rely on their hearts
The core cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can't happen to us
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust

It's a matter of trust
It's always been a matter of trust
It's a matter of trust

Trust is an issue | Reviewer: Kinley | 11/6/09

Great song and I love the lyrics. I have trust issues. I have trusted and got burned, so how do I go about trusting again? It always a matter of trust, once broken can never be mended to the same degree!

Hurt | Reviewer: kasey | 2/9/09

hey this song really describes my boyfriend and me we both have been hurt so much that one night we were talking about trust and he played this song for me and he took me close to him and slowed danced to it thats why i love this song so much

The story of the turtle and the scorpion | Reviewer: Michael | 12/12/08

A lot of good intentions and love and wisdom in this song. I like the noble side of it and the courage to love and to give. However, I disagree with the following.

1) Trust cannot be asked and can only be built over time. If the person does not have trust, you cannot ask him/her to give you trust, and the less that person will trust you.
2) If you cannot provide a condition/environment for that person to stay away from getting hurt, "recover when another belief is betrayed", how do you expect trust?
3) The strive for unconditioned love is good, but the prospect of walking away like a fool or a king does not seem so unconditioned; nor is it true that your lover has nothing to lose when you walked out; the fear of you leaving her one day; and again why should she trust?
4) Making sacrifices for the person you love is good, but it seems there is no wisdom of how sacrifices are made; Why would you make sacrifices to support your loved ones to hurt people, whether it's you or someone else? Not even a mother would love her child that way. She will never grow out of her problems. And uttimately it's destructive to you and her. Unconditioned love does not equate to blind love.
5) It seems you are not blaming, but aren't you just implying to her that the whole relationship does not work because entirely of her insecurity? You could be right, but an insecured person will take this as a judgement, blame other than anything else. And you want that person to trust?

I do feel sad about them both.

Always a classic! | Reviewer: Chris | 9/14/08

This song is a classic tune by Billy Joel! The lyrics are so true! I am sending these lyrics to a girl that is having trust issues because of previous relationships!

Billy Joel is one of the best songwriters around! His songs will never go out of date.

amazing | Reviewer: Elle | 8/12/08

This is, in my opinion, one of the best songs Billy Joel has written.

My favourite part is:
"This time you've got nothing to lose
You can take it, you can leave it, whatever you choose
I won't hold back anything
And I'll walk away a fool or a King"

fab song | Reviewer: wolf | 1/12/08

i love this song ^^ it was the first billy joel song i heard and i've been a fan of him since i was 6...i'm not that old if you think i'm like 30-odd..i'm only a teen and he is almost my idol

Too young ? Too old ? | Reviewer: Frank Elliott | 9/5/07

I've been a fan of B.J. since turnstiles[76]. Too many great songs to pick only one but if you twist my arm I would have to select "Just the way you are", followed close in second place by 50 other songs by b.j. By the way you're never too old or young to recognize and enjoy superb quality. Like a good wine, it improves with age. So keep it comin' Billy boy. P.S.was only! born in 1937.

Wow | Reviewer: KT | 6/13/07

Im 24 and was raised on Billy Joel....the man is the epitome of what a singer/songwriter should be, and yes he is old, but age does not define genius and this man is a certifiable one...his music has moved me since i was 7 and will continue to do so untill i die.

Live version is amazing! | Reviewer: Dione Nahirnick | 6/12/07

The live version of this song from "12 Gardens" makes my heart ache...I have always loved this song but hearing him perform it live is another matter entirely

hit too close to home | Reviewer: matthew~ | 6/11/07

this just played on my alarm radio this morning when i looked at the time..
i came to me right on the heels of mutually breaking off a short relationship mainly over trust issues. it scared teh $#!t out of me...

im not really a joel fan persay but these lyrics are definitely genius.
good job.

Real-Simple- Perfect lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/31/07

Just thinking about this song! Fantastic lyrics! Billy Joel is one of the best lyricists ever, with great, poignant, intelligent rhymes that are down to earth and relevant without running off into stream of consciousness nonense that Dylan and early Springsteen often do. Though I love them all. Billy Joel unfortunately got so overrated at one point that he is now underrated and dismissed by so many music fans. Tis' a pity!

Wish I saw him live. | Reviewer: Brian | 5/13/07

Big Billy Joel fan . I am 27 , I don't think I am too old. lol. Always liked his music. Recently walked away the fool when i didnt hold back anything.

When I was younger I always went for the performers who can actually sing ,tell a message,who can perform live. I wish music can go back to those days
