Long Way from Happiness
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

I guess you're okay
You seem to feel better these days
I've known you for so long
I've seen your brightness go from blue to grey

You know that's true
You can shake your head but I can prove
I've seen things through your eyes
You think you win but in the end you lose

And there's no second guess
We take no second bets
Chances are we're a long way from happiness
Don't cover up the road to love
With words that can't express
The truth implies you're high and dry
And you're a long way from happiness

I'm one step behind
Looking out for you all the time
I'll put my faith in you
And steer you clear of love that leaves you blindback to top
Live Like Horses
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin

I can't control this flesh and blood
That's wrapped around my bones
It moves beneath me like a river
Into the great unknown

I stepped onto the moving stairs
Before I could tie my shoes
Pried a harp out the fingers of a renegade
Who lived and died the blues

And his promise made was never clear
It just carved itself in me
All I saw was frost inside my head
On the night he said to me

Someday we'll live like horses
Free rein from your old iron fences
There's more ways than one to regain your senses
Break out the stalls and we'll live like horses

We're the victims of the heartbreak
That kept us short of breath
Trapped above these bloodless streets
Without a safety net

I stood in line to join the trial
One more customer of fate
Claimed a spoke in the wheel of the wagon train
On the road to the golden gate

On the flat cracked desert I jumped ship
It just made sense to me
I've spent too long in the belly of the beast
And now I shall be freeback to top
The End Will Come
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

And when we start we say forever
We say we care, we need, we feel
We read the movement of our eyes
But in our hearts we still believe

The end will come, before we know
The silent rule of love applies
We light the fuse and let it burn out
We just accept that love must die

And so they say, the end will come for us
And so the world, slows down to let us off
Just hang it up and let it go, accept it if I must
But I don't believe, I don't believe that the end will come for us
No I won't believe the end will come for us

The end will come like sudden rain
The end is never what it seems
We sink the ship before we sail
We just accept what failure meansback to top
If the River Can Bend
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

I don't know what to say
I don't know where the light shines
It's a grey dawn rising on a green hill
And there's so much behind us

I don't know where we go
I sure feel there's something out there
There's a great awakening and a new morning
And your spirit's pounding loud and clear

If the river can bend
I'll find you waiting
Home at last from the wild sea
All the twists and turns
We've made together
All the boats you rocked
With your harmony
If the river can bend
If the river can bend
If the river can bend
If the river can bend

Come and embrace the struggle
But win or lose we live here
Build a new beginning on an old rock
Breathe deep of the sweet fresh airback to top
Love's Got a Lot to Answer For
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

Pull my coat around me
Feel the cold wind haunt me
Streets are empty just like me
The murmur of an echo
Seems to come from every window
Is loneliness the same as being free

I guess I must have been dreaming
To think that I believed in you at all
Now I just can't fight it
As the shadow of the night begins to fall

Love's got a lot to answer for
Oh I just can't sleep with this feeling anymore
Let the cold night air cool the heat
Of two hearts gone to war
For no matter who wins, in the end
Love's got a lot to answer for

All I need is darkness
The best of all protection
Freedom's like the stars in the sky
Alone and cold and burning
Each one keeps it's distance
If only we were stars, you and iback to top
Something About the Way You Look Tonight
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

There was a time
I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me
I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

I need to tell you
How you light up every second of the day
But in the moonlight
You just shine like a beacon on the bay

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight

With a smile
You pull the deepest secrets from my heart
In all honesty
I'm speechless and I don't know where to startback to top
The Big Picture
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

On and on
The story of our lives goes on and on
The path of time
The sunsets up ahead roll along

In your eyes
The option of a warm embrace implies
You're my friend
Happy endings keep our love alive

And tell me do I fit in the big picture
Do I have a shot at the big part
'cause I've been up all night looking at the big picture
I've got some good lines for my big star

Wanna be your main man in the big picture
What a deal
To get a part like this

Day to day
The shifting wind just blows us on our way
Here and there
Our pockets full of things to say

Oh my love
I proudly represent you in this world
Little satellite
Brightest star tonight, oh my love

And tell me do I fit in the big picture
Do I have a shot at the big part
'cause I've been up all night looking at the big picture
I've got some good lines for my big star

Hope I got a future in the big picture
At the last embrace
From the first kiss

And tell me do I fit in the big picture
Do I have a shot at the big part
'cause I've been up all night looking at the big picture
I've got some good lines for my big starback to top
Recover Your Soul
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

Baby you're missing something in the air
I got a name but it don't matter
What's going on, it's cold in here
You have a life but it's torn and tattered

Maybe you're losing pieces of your heart
You have a world but it stopped turning
You lose the day and gain the dark
Love was a fire but it stopped burning

Spare your heart, save your soul
Don't drag your love across the coals
Find your feet and your fortune can be told
Release, relax, let go
And hey now let's recover your soul

Lazy old sunset sinking like a tear
Alone at night in a losing battle
That perfect world is never clear
You have to fight for the things that matterback to top
January
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

Must have been the right month
Must have been a good time
Must have counted every cloud in the sky that night
Every single glass of wine

Must have learned some home truths
Sitting in that cool grass
Must have counted every blade in that emerald field
Every shooting star that passed

Should have had a talk with god
Sitting in the great unknown
Watching all the lovers in the world get together
Sitting in heaven all alone

And we were love's knot after summer
Tied together in the dead of winter
Wrapped up with spring fever in the air
Bound together in the autumn
Every month means a little something
But january is the month that cares

Must have kissed you 'till I hurt you
Must have been a wild night
Must have rolled in the ashes at the break of day
Rag dolls in the morning light

Must have found a secret place
Hiding in our own world
Must have counted every smile on your sweet, sweet lips
Every single sound we heardback to top
I Can't Steer My Heart Clear of You
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

Take me for granted, I think that I could stand it
After all these rough seas
Left me reckless and abandoned
Say the spirits willing, chance a new beginning
Break down the cold front
Give me peace and understanding

And you wait, and you wonder
Will she still beat the drum and bring the thunder
Will she still be the star to see me through
'cause I can't steer my heart clear of you

No I can't steer my heart clear of you
It's the way it's been, ever since you sailed
Out of a storm and into view
And should I drift away, the compass holds the clue
You control the weather
And I can't steer my heart clear of you

Make me your penance, show me your innocence
Everything is history
From the aching to the pleasure
We enjoy the torture, the slow pain that it taught us
Everything gets twisted
Let me burn or bring me waterback to top
Wicked Dreams
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album the big picture

It's written clear across the room
In silent words the blind could understand
I came here to relax and find
A sleep that soaks me up like surf and sand

And you appear as I descend
A soft outline all poised and feather light
I come into the darkness now
To conjure up a dream and close my eyes

Don't disturb me if you dare
Join me if you have the nerve
I'll show you where the best of me has been
Behind my eyes I'll wait for you
Imagine just what we could do
Come join me in my wicked dream

Don't send me back to real life
The daily grind just leaves me feeling numb
Leave me in my wicked dream
Where pressure cracks and beauty comes undoneback to top
