I Go To Extremes Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (3)



Call me a joker, call me a fool
Right at this moment I'm totally cool
Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife
I feel like I'm in the prime of my life
Sometimes it feels like I'm going too fast
I don't know how long this feeling will last
Maybe it's only tonight

Darling I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens
And if I stand or I fall
It's all or nothing at all
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm shot
Sometimes I don't know how much more I've got
Maybe I'm headed over the hill
Maybe I've set myself up for the kill
Tell me how much do you think you can take
Until the heart in you is starting to break?
Sometimes it feels like it will

Darling I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens
You can be sure when I'm gone
I won't be out there too long
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

Out of the darkness, into the light
Leaving the scene of the crime
Either I'm wrong or I'm perfectly right every time
Sometimes I lie awake, night after night
Coming apart at the seams
Eager to please, ready to fight
Why do I go to extremes?

And if I stand or I fall
It's all or nothing at all
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

No I don't know why I go to extremes
Too high or too low
There ain't no in-betweens
You can be sure when I'm gone
I won't be out there too long
Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

I don't know why...I don't know why...
I don't know why...I don't know why...
Out in the dark...into the light...
either i'm wrong...perfectly right

Dear Mr. Joel. I hope you read this stuff. Root Beer Rag... You CANNOT be in a bad mood after listening to this tune. Sometimes, maybe it takes twice, but still.... So - I go to extremes a bit, just my character .... yep. Bet I could BS with you and have a cold beer. You're a real person.

My Aunt Diane told me to "watch out for him, he's going to make it big someday". Right after she gave me the album "Turnstiles". She was right. I wish for you the best, and I mean that. Maybe that would be to know how you have really touched.... and... Whoa, loss for words. Your job! "Mexicalli Blues"... don't always need words

I love these lyrics and I listen to this song all the time now. I wish I knew about it a long time ago. it might have prevented me from a lot of exhaustion. I love the words "and if I stand or I fall, it's all or nothing at all" That's what I do all the time. either I give it all I have or nothing. now I try to think about if I'm doing that or not.

I was 10 years old when I first heard the album Stormfront. My favorites on that album are: Downeaster Alexa, That's Not Her Style, I Go To Extremes, We didn't Start the Fire. Absolutely Amazing. I am now 17 years old, and still those songs are with me, and still wonderful in every way.
