Truly You

“Truly You” – Written by Russell Javors was one of four songs written by him chosen to be recorded by Karen, the fourth is called “Room At The Top,” it’s unsure whether or not Karen recorded this latter title.

The two Russell Javors compositions that made it onto Karen’s album are “All Because Of You” and “Still In Love With You.”

Karen was obviously impressed with Russell’s talent as a musician, arranger, producer and songwriter as she chose four of his songs to record. Javors spent more time in the studio than the other Billy Joel band members. He took the time to help Karen learn her vocal parts on the songs he wrote as well as shaping and arranging the musical parts of those songs.

Lyrics
Truly You

Love when I’m feeling like this
You make me feel alive
You get that look in your eyes every time
And if you find a better way
Have to say that any way you want to play will be alright

Oh it’s truly you
Ooh it’s truly you
You for me
And it’s me for you

Well I was weak and I lost my patience
I put the love on the line
You’ve got that love on your mind, so do I
It’s to the way it seems
I have to say that you’re the same
And if you’re looking for a fight

Oh it’s truly you
Ooh it’s truly you
You for me
And it’s me for you

If it’s too new
Give it time
Yes, it’s too soon
Tell the truth
We’ve got the rest of our lives

Well, I believe that a star will guide us
But there’s a star inside
And I’ve been looking for a light in my life

If you turned and walked away
I’ll have to say that if you stay
I’m gonna make it worth your while

Oh it’s truly you
Ooh it’s truly you
You for me
And it’s me for you

Oh it’s truly you
Ooh it’s truly you
You for me
And it’s me for you

Oh it’s truly you
Ooh it’s truly you
You for me
And it’s me for you
