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 goin' too fast,
I don't know how long this feelin' will last.
Maybe it's only tonight.

(Chorus)
Darlin' 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 if I fall,
It's all or nothin' at all.
Darlin' I don't know why I go to extremes.

2. Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm shot,
Sometimes I don't know how much more I 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's startin' to break?
Sometimes it feels like it will.
(Chorus "And if you're sure that I'm gone, I won't be out there too long" as the 3rd and 4th lines.)

3. Out of the darkness, into the light,
Leavin' the scene of the crime.
Either I'm wrong or I'm perfectly right every time.
Sometimes I lie awake night after night
Fallin' apart at the seams.
Eager to please, ready to fight,
Why do I go to extremes?
(Chorus repeated twice. 3rd and 4th lines are the same as after verse 2. "No, I don't know why I go to extremes" replaces the line)

Correction to 3rd line of verse 2 chorus: "You can be sure while I'm gone." And also, the 3rd and 4th lines of the first repeated chorus after verse 3 are the same as the chorus after verse 1 while the second repeated chorus uses the 3rd and 4th lines repeated after verse 2. Also, there is a (piano) solo and repetition of the phrases "I don't know why..perfectly right/out of the" in the middle, then a fadeout and a last repetition.
