He's got a way

Today I was driving in the car and this classic came on the radio:



First of all, I love Billy Joel's voice :)
Second, I love the lyrics...and I couldn't help but switch them around a bit in my head...so that it was "HE's got a way." As I sang along with Mr. Joel, just swapping the she's for he's and the her's for him's, my heart smiled because it describes many of the feelings I have for my sweet Adam.

Later while cooking dinner, I youtubed the video and played it over and over (I tend to do that with songs, a lot)...and when Adam came home he said, "I sang this song in High School." Of course I about melted into a puddle on the floor thinking of my sweetheart singing those lyrics. Adam then picked up a very happy-to-see-daddy Brooks and he danced and sang to him on the other side of the counter, while I finished prepping dinner. After a minute or two I told him how I actually thought of another version for it..."He's got a way"...a huge, handsome smile slid across his face and then he walked over to me... the three of us danced...it was for no more than 30 seconds, but it was heaven.

I just listened to the song again and typed up the lyrics with those minor changes...goodness they give me butterflies :)

(based on Billy Joel's "She's Got A Way")

he's got a way about hm
i don't know what it is
but i know that i can't live without him
he's got a way of pleasing
i don't know why it is
but there doesn't have to be a reason anyway
he's got a smile that heals me
i don't know why it is
but i have to laugh when he reveals me
he's got a way of talking
don't know why it is
but it lifts me up when we are walking anywhere
he comes to me when i'm feeling down
inspires me without a sound
he touches me and i get turned around
he's got a way of showin' how i make him feel
and i find the strength to keep on goin'
he's got a light around him
everywhere he goes a million dreams of love surround him everywhere
he comes to me when i'm coming down
inspires me without a sound
he touches me i get turned around
he's got a smile that heals me
i don't know why it is
but i have to laugh when he reveals me
he's got a way about him
i don't know what it is
but i know that i can't live without him anyway

My Adam sure does have a way about him...and I love how he has a way with our son. Adam is giving Brooks his bedtime bath as I type this, and I can hear them both laughing :)

Did you know that I am quite possibly Billy Joel's biggest fan? 9 times out of 10, his greatest hits are hanging out in my car cd player. :)

LOVE this song, and love that it inspired to think of your very special husband.

Sweet Sweet Sweet.
