It’s not often, but sometimes you hear a song that just hits every nerve in your body. Tune, lyrics, voice – everything about that piece of music is you in the moment.
Sometimes, it’s more embarrassing, such as Demi Lovato’s Heart Attack. (I hear ya girl, been there, done that, still there – kinda).
But sometimes, it’s the most important thing you could hear in a moment. In fact, this song hit me so hard, that I’m almost certain that Billy Joel thought of me when he created this masterpiece. This moment, this day, the last year. My entire life situation in one melodic song so perfect, that I even feel lighter.
Of course I’ve listened to the song before, but now…
Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about? You better cool it off before you burn it out You got so much to do and only So many hours in a day (Ay)
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 (Oooh) 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 got your passion, you got your pride But don’t you know that only fools are satisfied? Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true (Oooh) When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?
Slow down you crazy child Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while It’s alright, you can afford to lose a day or two (oooh) 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 halfway through (oooh) Why don’t you realize… Vienna waits for you?
When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?
