When The Truth Is Told...

Monday, April 18, 2011

My iPod kept shuffling to this song on the way to work today.  Somehow, it's exactly perfect for life these days.  That Billy Joel is one smart guy... (Stop laughing now please.)
Slow down, you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart, tell me
Why are you still so afraid?

Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You'd better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and
Only so many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told...
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even
Get halfway through
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?
Slow down, you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be
Before your time
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight
Tonight,...
Too bad but it's the life you lead
You're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you're wrong, you know
You can't always see when you're right. you're right

You've got your passion, you've got your pride
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you crazy child
And take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
It's all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?
And you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get half through
Why don't you realize, Vienna waits for you
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?
If you're a praying kind of person, I could use some this week.  More details to come later, I'm sure.  In unrelated news, I just tried to unlock my office with my car's keyless entry.  Happy Monday friends...

  2. For what it's worth, today it crossed my mind that I really wish my house had keyless entry. So your attempt isn't all that crazy :)
