Just The Way You Are
Billy Joel Lyrics


Don't go changing to try and please me
You never let me down before, mmm-hmm
I 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't change the color of your hair, mmm-hmm
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, mmm-hmm
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
Oh, what will it take 'til you believe in me
The way that I believe in you?

I said I love you, that's forever
And this I promise from the heart, mmm-hmm
I couldn't love you any better
I love you just the way you are

Wait

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard, mmm-hmm
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are

LYRICS :

Don't go changing to try and please me
You never let me down before, mmm
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, mmm
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't change the color of your hair, mmm
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, mmm
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
Oh, but what will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you?
I said I love you, that's forever
And this I promise from the heart, mmm
I couldn't love you any better
I love you just the way you are, right
I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard, mmm
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are

My son has Cerebral Palsy and is 17 now. He can't walk talk or eat, but I couldn't love him any more than I do. When this song came on one day when we were together, it summed it up perfectly. "I don't need clever conversation. I just need someone I can talk to". This is my song to my son Fischer. Its our song

Margaret Farmer

And are you there for what he wants, too?

As someone who has been physically and emotionally abused who works in a group home overnight taking care of three wonderful, beautiful ladies, the fact that someone else feels this way means a lot to me. I really appreciate your heart.

Justin Johnson

This song is great because it's a love song but it doesn't have to be directed to a dating relationship. It can be sung to a father, a son, a mother, or a friend and that's why it's great

@Michealle Angela That's brilliant...

Michealle Angela
