ALBUM:  THE BRIDGE
TAB BY: DON CZARSKI
EMAIL:  GUITARZAN7@HOTMAIL.COM


                     A MATTER OF TRUST
                         BILLY JOEL
INTRO: 

Spoken:  One, two, a one, two, three, four

Play 2x's (Improvise on this pattern if you want)

      D      Bm
      sl.
E --------------------------------|
B --------------------------------|  
G ---7/9--7---------------7-------|
D ---7/9--7---7h9-9-7--9----------|
A --------------------------------|
E --------------------------------|


VERSE:
 D                   A          Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                          A           Bm         A
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start

And they may not want it to end
                          A7           D
But it will, it's just a question of when


VERSE:
D                  A             Bm
I've lived long enough to have learned
D                          A       Bm            A
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned

But that won't happen to us
                            A7        D
Because it's always been a matter of trust 


INSTRUMENTAL:  - PLAY INTRO - 


VERSE:
D                 A         Bm
I know you're an emotional girl
D                         A             Bm            A
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world

I can't offer you proof
                         A7        D
But you're gonna face a moment of truth


VERSE:
D                      A        Bm
It's hard when you're always afraid
D                      A        Bm           A
You just recover when another belief is betrayed

So break my heart if you must
        A7                   
It's a matter of trust 


BREAK:
     Em          
You can't go the distance
     F#m  
With too much resistance
   G              F#m
I know you have doubts                   sl.
          A                       G    G / A   D
But for God's sake don't shut me out 


VERSE:
D                    A          Bm
This time you've got nothing to lose
D                         A          Bm          A
You can take it, you can leave it whatever you choose

I won't hold back anything
                      A7        D
And I'll walk away a fool or a king


VERSE:
D                    A          Bm
Some love is just a lie of the mind
D                             A      Bm        A
It's make believe until it's only a matter of time

And some might have learned to adjust
                         A7        D
But then it never was a matter of trust 


INSTRUMENTAL: PLAY IMPROVISED INTRO 3x's 
THEN A BARRE CHORD A or POWER CHORD A


BREAK:
     Em
I'm sure you're aware love
       F#m                     G          F#m
We've both had our share of believing too long
                                      sl.
           A                   G    G / A   D
When the whole situation was wrong 


VERSE:
D                    A          Bm
Some love is just a lie of the soul
D                          A        Bm        A
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control

After you've heard lie upon lie
                       A7          D
There can hardly be a question of why


VERSE:
D                    A          Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                        A            Bm          A
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start

But that can't happen to us
                           A7        D
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust 


OUTRO:
Play INTRO over and over (about 5 times) 
and sing these words ....

It's a matter of trust

It's always been a matter of trust 

It's a matter of trust
