And So It Goes Lyrics

Artist: Billy Joel

In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along

I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows.

Her name was Kathy. We had been together for five marvelous years. And then SHE made the decision to leave. We planned it well. It was the holidays. There was, what we knew, was the last of our wonderful lovemakings. And then, she was gone, and I was so alone.
For three sad days, I was in a dark room, alone, with a bottle of Crown Royal, and the continuous sounds of Billy Joel repeating the lyrics of "And So It Goes". My daughter stopped in, for fear she would find her father a victim of suicide. Billy Joel helped me to make it through those 3 horrendous days. And then my life went on. "And so it goes, and so it goes. And you're the only one who knows" Thanks Billy.
