"She's the kind of girl you want so much It makes you sorry
Still, you don't regret a single day"
Of course, the reason it popped now is that we're in this moment of finally discussing abuse and that's what this song is about.
That never occurred to me. I always thought it was about being in love with someone who doesn't love you the way you love them or loves you not at all.

The context for the lyrics coming up is one of the pairs is skating to a Beatles medley in this Olympics season.
Not a Beatles song, it's by Billy Joel.
That's "Uptown Girl" (yes?) and this isn't.
Perhaps. But that's usually racial jokes.
Uptown girl is about his former wife Christie Brinkley who was in the video.
She's always a woman to me is the song that was being referenced.
She's Always a Woman
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 you to love, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
Yeah she steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind
And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it… Full lyrics on Google Play Music
"She's Always a Woman" is a song from Billy Joel's 1977 album The Stranger. It is a love song about a modern woman, with whom he falls in love for her quirks as well as her flaws. The single peaked at #17 in the U.S. in 1977, and at #53 in the UK in 1986, when it was released as a double A-side with "Just the Way You Are". It re-entered the UK chart in 2010, reaching #29. A Muzak version of the track by Frank Chacksfield Orchestra is known to be one of the last songs played over the former World Trade Center complex before its collapse. The song is played in the compound time signature of 6/8.
