I Go to Extremes - Billy Joel

Call me a joker, call me a fool Right at this moment I'm totally cool Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife I feel like I'm in the prime of my life Sometimes it feels like I'm going to fast I don't know how long this feeling will last Maybe it's only tonight

CHORUS: Darling I don't know why I go to extremes Too high or too low there ain't no in-betweens And if I stand or I fall It's all or nothing at all Darling I don't know why I go to extremes

Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm shot Sometimes I don't know how much more I've got Maybe I'm headed over the hill Maybe I've set myself up for the kill Tell me how much do you think you can take Until the heart in you is starting to break? Sometimes it feels like it will


Out of the darkness, into the light Leaving the scene of the crime Either I'm wrong or I'm perfectly right every time Sometims I lie awake, night after night Coming apart at the seams Eager to please, ready to fight Why do I go to extremes?
