And So It Goes (Billy Joel) In every heart, there is a room A sanctuary safe and strong To heal the wounds of 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 will choose to be with you As if the choice were mine to make For 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. Copyright Billy Joel JM
