いや〜何でも来年1/24にビリージョエルが16年振りに来日すると言うネットニュースで知り、急に歌声が聴きたくなり、今やなんでもYOU TUBEで聴ける時代ですがCDを探して聴きました。
好みにもよるでしょうが、やはり名曲は時代を経ても名曲ですね^^

バラードの中でもお気に入りの名曲 “Just The Way You Are”
この曲は、最初の奥さんの為に作った曲だと言われています。
YOU TUBEの “ビリージョエルチャンネル” からピックアップしちゃいました!




Don't go changing to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don't imagine.You're too 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

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don' change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seems 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 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

I said I love you,and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I couldn't 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
