Always a Woman Lyrics
She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child
But she’s always a woman to me
She can lead...

A song about a woman who is a heartbreaker. She doesn’t need him and she may be a bit edgy. She has it in her to love deeply. She has all the ingredients to draw him in and spit him out. A modern woman of sorts, versus the woman who would jump for the opportunity to be taken care of by a man. She can wait for what she wants. While this may have been frowned upon in view of traditional expectations of women and bruised egos, he still sees her as a beautiful woman. He still views her as his love, the center of his affection.

She's as tough as nails because she had to be to survive. She wants to be loving and trusting but her past just keeps on creeping in. She's very capable of loving you in a way that will make you feel like you are the only man in the wirld...but, fuck with her and she'll pull a Lorena Bobbitt on you while you're fast asleep. She's definitely a Gemini! Lmao!

He said on Howard Stern that the song was about his former wife. She could be tough and a hard-ass when it came to business or dealing with others, but it didn't matter.
To Joel she was always a beautiful woman to him.

What he is saying is that you may think all these things about her but to me she's smart, shrewd, and she can go toe to toe with anyone who challenges her.
this is another song that has it's roots firmly planted in new york city. there is a lot of not really split personalities but more like two differant people in one body. you have to be tough in the city or you'll never get your morning coffee in a shop that holds 20 comfortable but there are 50 in there now, with another 50 outside.also new york women are tough when negotiating a million dollar contract but leaving the board room stops to admire the flowers on a secretary's desk.and at the end of the day becomes an adoring wife and mother. it's not easy living and working in the city, but who ever said it would be
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
