Hey y'all. My name is Mike. I'm a big Billy Joel fan, and everywhere I looked I couldn't 
find the chords to this song. So, I took the time to figure it out by ear.
It was a lot of work, as some of the chords in the bridges were quite confusing, 
but I think I just about got them all right. Post in the comments and let me know how I did!
Enjoy!

Intro:
EbMaj7 Dm7 Cm7 F Bb

                   EbMaj7    Dm7
Even though I'm in love
Cm7          F      Bb
Sometimes I get so afraid
                   EbMaj7    Dm7
I'll say something so wrong
Cm7         F      Bb
Just to have something to say

                        Fm   Gm G7 
I know the moment isn't right
   Cm7             Bb     G#  
To tell the girl a comical line
Ab/G                    Fm   Gm G7 
To keep the conversation light
   Cm7             Bb                 F 
I guess I'm just frightened out of my mind

                   EbMaj7    Dm7
But if that's how I feel
              Cm7          F      Bb
Then it's the best feeling I've even known
                EbMaj7    Dm7
It's undeniably real
Cm7            F         Bb
Leave a tender moment alone

                   EbMaj7    Dm7
Yes I know I'm in love
      Cm7        F      Bb
But just when I ought to relax
                    EbMaj7    Dm7
I put my foot in my mouth
      Cm7            F         Bb
Cause I'm just avoiding the facts

                      Fm   Gm G7
If the girl gets too close
   Cm7          Bb     G#   
If I need some room to escape
Ab/G             Fm   Gm G7 
When the moment arose
    Cm7           Bb     F 
I'd tell her it's all a mistake

                     EbMaj7    Dm7
But that's not how I feel
    Cm7           F             Bb
No that's not the woman I've known
                  EbMaj7    Dm7
She's undeniably real
    Cm7           F        Bb
So leave a tender moment alone

                 Am
But it's not only me
D7                   EbMaj7          Dm7 
Breaking down when the tension gets high
Cm7                 Em7          A7
Just when I'm in a serious mood
                 Dm7       C#7   Cm7
She is suddenly quiet and shy


Solo follows verse EbMaj7 Dm7 Cm7 F Bb progression

                         Fm   Gm G7
I know the moment isn't right
   Cm7        Bb       G#
To hold my emotions inside
    Ab/G                 Fm   Gm G7 
To change the attitude tonight
Cm7             Bb          F
I've run out of places to hide

                   EbMaj7    Dm7
And if that's how I feel
              Cm7           F         Bb
Then it's the best feeling I've ever known
                EbMaj7    Dm7
It's undeniably real
 Cm7           F         Bb
Leave a tender moment alone

You got to leave a tender moment alone
Leave a tender moment
Leave it alone
You've got to leave a tender moment
Leave a tender moment alone

Hey! Great job on the breakdown! ("Not only me" down.) Appreciate it... Started picking out basically the same until that part and then was like uhhh nope! Only things I really heard different were Gaug instead of Gm, Eb/F in the verse instead of F, and Fm7 starting off the B section. Small things though
