You’re Only Human (Second Wind) by Billy Joel


This video is from Billy Joel’s DVD The Essential Video Collection (Columbia Music Video). The track is about George Young, a teenager living in the New York area who contemplates committing suicide after he wrecks his car and breaks up with his girl friend. Joel plays a harmonica-playing friendly spirit who meets up with the teenager as he is about to jump off the bridge.
