Song: "She's Got a Way"
Writer and Original Performer: Billy Joel
Original Release: November 1, 1971
Album: Cold Spring Harbor
This is a song I have long associated with my daughter. The "smile that heals me," the laugh that "reveals me" and the "light around her" are all reminiscent of the spell she first cast upon me as a little girl. Years pass and the little kid is replaced by a young woman, turning 16 soon - too soon. The father/daughter relationship gets more complicated as life gets more complicated. But she can still floor me with a smile.
