Joel as often talked about the fact that he did not feel he had true love in his life. He acknowledged that his fans loved him but were conscious of the fact that none of them truly knew him.

He said fans could be screaming his name and telling him they loved him, but they would never know his innermost thoughts and feelings. He shared:

“You just need one — one person out of millions — to know and accept and love you for being, well, just the way you are.”

Joel so badly wanted to find that love that he was married four times. Yet it was not until his last marriage that he finally found what he was looking for. Before he settled down and had children with his current partner, he had trouble understanding why he was failing in love.

The singer couldn’t grasp that other people were falling in love and settling down when he was trying so hard. He did not understand why it was so much easier for other people than it seemed to be for him.

Talking about what he observed in the world each day and what he thought when he saw other people getting the things he wanted, Joel admitted:

“I used to wonder: How come I don’t have that? I can dream about it, think about it, write music and lyrics and sing about it. I can even try to achieve it again, and often have.”
