"You Can Make Me Free" as written by and Billy Joel....
You can make me free
You can make me smile
You can make me be
Like a little child

You can melt the ice that chills my body
You can dry my every tear
You make the lonely hours disappear

You can make me free
You can make me rise
You can make me see
So open up my eyes

Don't you know my only real moments
Are the ones I spend with you
How I long to drink some wine again with you

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with its heart full of song
Won't you color my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with his heart full of song
Won't you cover my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

I can take to the skies
I can soar like a bird with his heart full of song
Won't you cover my eyes
I've been waiting so long

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

And if I must wait a lonely lifetime
Until I am with you, my love
I will wait but you'll be what I'm dreamin' of

You can make me free
You can make me cry
You can make it so much better
If you would only try

    General CommentAn all time favourite, I don't care if the whole sounds too quick or not, as I've read somewhere.

    Bright BJ with the purest of hearts, sweetest of voices -in a male- he put the most elegant soundtrack in my nights of passion.

    And this I remember too well, cause while we kissed, Billy Joel was singing the bottom line: "You can melt the ice that chills my body, You can dry my ev'ry tear" and there comes the beautiful thing: my partner -ignorant- didn't catch a single word of English. But felt passionate about this young man's voice though, and said so. From then on, every time I listen to this song, some small part of my mind recalls those nights. At once, like an open perfume.

    General CommentThis is a great song from his greatest album "Cold Spring Harbor". The first release of this song is around 6 minutes long, when the re-release is almost 3. Artie Ripp wrecked that song. It was good how it was just like Tomorrow is Today.

    General CommentA homage to Lennon and McCartney for sure, especially around the White Album era... listen to "Blackbird" for one.
