Candlewitch

Billy Joel


Billy Joel

she walks
on the glowing embers
that smolder
on the pathway
of his heart.
barefoot...
and without a care,
she hums the tune of
his favorite song:
"A Matter Of Trust"
Christy Brinkley
would be proud...

    "Some love is just a lie of the heart, the cold remains of what began with a passionate start".
    Billy, a great lyricist, musician and performer. Was one of my favourites, i must dig out recordings of 80's and re-live those feelings.
    Such great stuff he wrote for Christy, yes she was the uptown girl he sang about. The one who walked on the beach beside that old hotel.
    Lyrical inspirational man.
    Great tribute, pleasure to read.
