Elton John

Abide With Me – Elton John

Abide with me, fast forth the eventide
The darkness deepens, Lord abide with me
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness
Where is death’s sting, where, grave, that victory
I triumph still if Thou abide with me

Hold Thou thy cross before my closen eyes
Shine throught the gloom and point me to the skies
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee
In life, in death, O Lord abide with me
In life, in death, O Lord abide with me

A Woman’s Needs – Elton John

Where have you been are you still on my side
Is that love or regret that I see in your eyes
How many years have we played out this game
Every time we come close the answer’s always the same

I guess some souls get restless under the skin
There’s a shortage by half of marrying men
You know that I love you but I love to be free
So tell me what do you want, yeah from a gypsy like me

I need a ring on my finger, champagne on ice
One man to show me the best part of life
Is that what you want
Yeah, that’s what I need

A home and a family makes sense for us
A solid foundation built out of trust
Do you think you can find that with someone like me
Two arms to hold you, one place to be
Are just some of the things that a woman needs

I’ve been shortchanged and cheated so many times
But you’re all that I’ve wanted For all of my life
I’ve searched for the reasons, known how I’ve felt
But what can I give you when I can’t trust myself

A Word In Spanish – Elton John

I don’t know why
I just know I do
I just can’t explain
In this language that I use
Something leaves me speechless
Each time that you approach
Each time you glide right through me
As if I was a ghost

If I only could tell you
If you only would listen
I’ve got a line or two to use on you
I’ve got a romance we could christen

And there’s a word in Spanish I don’t understand
But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears
A word in Spanish, a word in Spanish

If you can’t comprehend
Read it in my eyes
If you don’t understand it’s love
In a thin disguise
And what it takes to move you
Each time that you resist
Is more than just a pretty face
To prove that I exist

When manners make no difference
And my gifts all lay undone
I trade my accent in on chance
And fall back on a foreign tongue

A Step Too Far – Elton John

It’s so strange he doesn’t show me more affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful, never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine I’m not always on his mind
He’s not thinking what I’m thinking, always half a beat behind
Always half a beat behind

I’m in every kind of trouble, can’t you tell, just look at me
Half ecstatic, half dejected, all in all I’m all at sea
Easy turns I thought I wanted, fill me now with chilling dread
You can never know the chaos, of a life turned on it’s head
Of a life turned on it’s head

Take a little time to panic, shake off your complacent state
I know all I ever wished to, of a life destroyed by fate
It’s so strange you never notice anything but where you are
Step outside your gleaming prison, or is that a step too far
Or is that a step too far

A Simple Man – Elton John

I’m a simple man with a simple dream
In a far from simple time
And I payed the price of the road I chose
But at least the choice was mine

And the times I get the feeling
That the journey’s end is near
But I prefer to die with my head held high
Than to live my life in fear

I’m a simple man from a time gone by
Growing cold and old alone
There’s a time to run and a time to hide
And a time to head for home

To forgive and be forgiven
If it’s the last thing I can do
Then in death’s release I may find the peace
That in life I never knew

‘Cause I’m a simple man with a simple dream
I may never see come true

Wake Up Wendy – Elton John

Got this bug-eyed girl
Cold hand on my knee
Frozen teeth, chitter chatter
She’s dresed up like a cemetary, like a cemetary

Snow-bound all winter
Blue lips on my cheek
Little tongue’s prattlin’, rattlin’
Talking ’bout them hometown geeks, them home-town geeks

Wake up Wendy, smell the coffee
Help me into your custom kitchen
Gimme a cup of that old black magic
I wanna get me some of that old home cookin’

Can you feel it
It’s chilly and a-freezin’
Wake up Wendy, moods are changing
I got a reason, you got a feeling
Wake up Wendy, love’s in season

Feels like a steam clean
When she washes me
Valves a-bustin’, pumps a-hissin’
Just peel me off the ceiling, off the ceiling

Chill-eyed, bug-eyed girl
Zap me into cinders
Pop the thermal mumbo jumbo
Melt me with your little fingers, with your little fingers

Victim Of Love – Elton John

You said you’d never fake it
You swore we’d always make it last
And it sounded so real
And I fell into your love trap
Lying, yes, I was the perfect fool
I believed every word
And it never occurred to me
Is this a game are you just playing
Will I be losing you

Oh am I a victim of love, victim of love
Did you take me for a ride
Victim of love, victim of love
Then I hope you’re satisfied
Victim of love, victim of love
Were you only using me
Victim of love, victim of love
What a fool you made of me

My friends warned me about you
I laughed, how could I doubt your love
Then I saw you with him
And my world crumbled around me
I felt life slip away from me
There’s a void inside me
Where my heart used to be
So now, this was a game you were just playing
And now I’m losing you

Oh I’m a victim of love, victim of love
Well you took me for a ride
Victim of love, victim of love
Well I hope you’re satisfied
Victim of love, victim of love
You were only using me
Victim of love, victim of love
What a fool you’ve made of me

Take Me To The Pilot – Elton John

If you feel that it’s real I’m on trial
And I’m here in your prison
Like a coin in your mint
I am dented and I’m spent with high treason

Through a glass eye your throne
Is the one danger zone
Take me to the pilot for control
Take me to the pilot of your soul

Take me to the pilot
Lead me through the chamber
Take me to the pilot
I am but a stranger

Take me to the pilot
Lead me through the chamber
Take me to the pilot
I am but a stranger

Well I know he’s not old
And I’m told he’s a virgin
For he may be she
But what I’m told is never for certain

Take Me Down To The Ocean – Elton John

Take me down to the water
Take me back to the source
Call the meeting to order
And let it run its course

Take me back to my childhood
When I was so alone
Let me feel like a child would
Looking out across the great unknown

Take me down to the ocean
Take me down to the sea
Set the feeling in motion
Forget the tied up time and let my spirit free

Take away the illusion
Of the man, of the king
Help me lose the confusion
So I can breathe again

Take me down to the ocean
Take me down to the sea
Set the feeling in motion
So you can just be you and I can just be me
That’s how I need to be

Take Me Back – Elton John

If you want my loving take me back
If you miss my touch little girl take me back
When the dreams you lean on are beginning to crack
Open up your heart little girl and take me back

If you want my loving then take me back
If you’re on your own little girl take me back
When the nights grow longer turning blacker than black
Open up your heart little girl and take me back

Playing a part you’re well prepared for, there you stand
With all I ever cared for in your hand
I’m waiting all the time
For some kind of sign from you
And I’ll go on and on this way
Waiting for the day
When I will hear you say
You’ll take me back

If you want my loving well take me back
If you’re feeling down little girl
Then you’ll take me back
When you look around you for the love that you lack
Open up your heart little girl
You got my heart little girl
Make a start little girl
And say you’ll take me back
Take me back
