Billy Joel Matter Of Trust Lyrics

Last updated: 01/29/2012 10:00:00 AM

One, two, ah, one, two, three, four...

Some love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
And they may not want it to end
But in real 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
But that won't happen to us
Because 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 going to 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

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 a way a fool or a king
Some love is just a lie of the mind
It's make believe until its 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 love is just a lie of the soul
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 love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can't happen to us
Because it's always been a matter of trust

memories | Reviewer: Leo | 1/23/12

this song reminds me of a close friend of mine who now pasted away from cancer, she used to play this song a lot and i get emotional every time i hear it, but i love this song a lot, true words and meanings.

simply looking back | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/13/11

after almost 2 decades, it just came up to my mind on listening to this song again and coincidentally saw the person who gave the copy to me, in fb. though it's history, it's just too funny to recall those corny days of being young. the song speaks well what really transpired....exactly.

Ahh, memories. | Reviewer: Eric | 11/15/08

I'm 26 years old and this song just popped into my head the other day. I remember listening to this song when I was young (the beginning, in particular brought back memories), and I enjoy it just as much today. I think to myself, "I bet there are other songs on that album that I really like and just can't remember. Thank god for the internet ;)

Awesome! | Reviewer: Lu | 1/8/08

I fell in love with this song when I was 5! Couple of years later the tape on which it recorded was lost. Being so young I didn’t know who was singing it or what the name of that record was. English is not my first language so it was quite hard to work out any meaning of the song or its title. 15 years later by luck I found it on the internet and am now enjoying it again. Billy’s voice is amazing!

Beautiful | Reviewer: Terry | 6/9/07

Didn't realized what an awesome voice Billy Joel has until I heard a clip on youtube. I could listen to him sing forever.
