all Elton John lyrics



Teardrops
Whenever I hear good-bye
Reminds me, baby, of you
I break down and cry
The next time I'll be true, yeah

Fever for lost romance
Reminds me, baby, of you
I took a crazy chance
The next time I'll be true, I'll be true

Footsteps on the dance floor
Remind me, baby, of you
Teardrops in my eyes
Next time I'll be true, yeah

Whispers in the back room
She cries on every tune, every tune

And the music don't feel like it did
When I felt it with you
Nothing that I do or feel ever feels
Like I felt it with you

When I'm dancing round
Reminds me, baby, of you
I won't let you down
The next time I'll be true, I'll be trueback to top
When I Think About Love (I Think About You)
Duet with p. m. dawn
Written by attrel cordes
Available on the album duets

Holding all the pictures that my life draw
I never find a missing love
Remembering all the rays that have been made
But never cloudy leaving love

Ask me what it is that makes it special
Why is it so real to me
It's knowing who keeps their place in my heart
It's knowing how is it I can feel you
It's knowing never will I change my mind, baby
When I think about love I think about you
When I think about love I think about you

Too many times I've turned my emotions on and off
Without realizing what it does
I know what's moved me and kept me going this far
But I never questioned what it wasback to top
The Power
Duet with little richard
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album duets

I have sold myself through and through
I have walked in the darkness too
I've felt a red sun, the living proof
Washed my hands in the honest truth

I have carried this weight time after time
I have bettered the dumb and the blind
I've seen dignity fail and colors run
Seen justice denied by the voice of a gun

And we walk, yes we walk
And we walk with the power every day
Never letting the light slip away

Reaching out, reaching in
Touching truth and touching skin
Never letting the light slip away
And we walk with the power every day

If our faith is a fire then burn baby burn
We've had fire long enough to learn
Keeping me whole is a healing light
Kept alive by the flames of night

Walk tall in the power day after day
Never, never, never lose sight of the way
See the dawn come and the dusk end
See the power rise from an open handback to top
Shakey Ground
Duet with don henley
Written by jeffrey bowen, eddie hazel and alphonso boyd
Available on the album duets

Lady luck and the four leaf clover
Won't be as hurt as I feel all over
My life for one special occasion
`til you leave in depth the situation

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

My car got repossessed this morning
Harder times I haven't seen in years
Able to throw me a life preserver
`cause I'm about to drown in my own tears

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Shaking, shakey ground
Standing, standing
Standing on shakey groundback to top
True Love
Duet with kiki dee
Written by cole porter
Available on the album duets

Suntanned, windblown
Honeymooners at last alone
Feeling far above par
Oh, how lucky we are

While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love
So on and on it will always be
True love, true love

For you and I have a guardian angel
On high, with nothing to do
But to give to you as you give to me
Love forever, true
Love forever, true

Give me more true love
Oh yeah
True love, true love

Gotta give me your true love
Oh yeah
True love, true loveback to top
If You Were Me
Duet with chris rea
Written by chris rea
Available on the album duets

If you were me
And I was you
If you had to play my part out
What would you do
Two crazy stories
Two different views
If you were me
And I was you

If you were me
And I was you
What kind of crazy things
Would I have to do
Who likes to party
Who stays at home
If you were me
And I was you

Never like strangers
Though never the same
Two circus sideshows
You laughed in the rain
You stayed with the full moon
You searched for the stars
Thank God it's heaven
Here we both areback to top
A Woman's Needs
Duet with tammy wynette
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album duets

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
I 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 myselfback to top
Old Friend
Duet with nik kershaw
Written by nik kershaw
Available on the album duets

I want to be good, I want to be strong
But I treated him bad, I've done him wrong

I've taken his money, I'm given him hell
And he takes it all 'cause he knows me well

We can say what we mean and mean what we say
We don't like to mess around
But we're there to hold each other up
When we're falling down

Just like an old friend
Putting me on my feet again
Giving me back my pride then
Letting me go
Just like an old friend
Putting me in my place again
Giving me back my hope then
Letting me know that he's an old friend

I don't suffer no fools *i testify*
But he must be one for being by my side
I've broken his heart
I've shaken his tree
But still he doesn't want anything from a fool like me

We won't talk for a year or two
Maybe when we do we won't say much
Even so we know that out of mind is never out of touch

We're having a man-to-man
Don't want to get sentimental
But both of us understand
We'll never have to say goodbye, just see you laterback to top
Go on and On
Duet with gladys knight
Written by stevie wonder
Available on the album duets

On and on
On and on

She broke my heart, he hurt me too
That's something that only unworthy souls do

They said goodbye, we say hello
An introduction for a perfect love to grow

Let's stop thinking about the past
And start thinking about the future
So that love can go on and on
Let's stop thinking about the past
And start thinking about the future
So that love can go on and on

She said she'd stay, he said that too
So sad when you find out your love has found a new

She made me cry, he made me weep
But life has love in store for us that's ooh so sweet

On and on (love keeps going on)
On and on (they've got the whole of life)
On and on (love keeps going on)
On and

It's time to say goodbye to crying eyes and broken dreams
And get back to the joy that to each other we will bring
That starts from summer love to last through autumn, winter, spring
Our hearts will sing forever, loveback to top
Don't Go Breaking My Heart
Written by ann orson and carte blanche
Duet with kiki dee (1976)
Released as a uk single in march, 1976
Duet with rupaul (1993)
Available on the album duets

Don't go breaking my heart
I couldn't if I tried
Honey if I get restless
Baby you're not that kind

Don't go breaking my heart
You take the weight off me
Honey when you knock on my door
I gave you my key

Nobody knows it
When I was down
I was your clown
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
I gave you my heart
I gave you my heart

So don't go breaking my heart
I won't go breaking your heart
Don't go breaking my heart

And nobody told us
`cause nobody showed us
And now it's up to us babe
I think we can make it

So don't misunderstand me
You put the light in my life
You put the sparks to the flame
I've got your heart in my sightsback to top
Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing
Duet with marcella detroit
Written by nickolas ashford and valerie simpson
Available on the album duets

Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing

I got your picture hanging on my wall
But it can't seem to come to me
When I call your name
I realized it's just a picture in a frame

I read your letters but you're not here
They don't move me, they don't groove me
Like when I hear
Your sweet voice whispering in my ear

I play my games of fantasy
I pretend I don't see reality
I need the shelter of your arms to comfort me

I got some memories to look back on
Though they help me when you're gone
I'm well aware
Nothing can take the place of you being there

No other sound is quite the same as your name
No touch can do half as much
To make me feel better
Let's stay together

I'm so
So glad we got the real thing, baby
So glad we got the real thing
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thingback to top
I'm Your Puppet
Duet with paul young
Written by linden oldham and dan penn
Available on the album duets

Pull the string and I'll wink at you, I'm your puppet
I'll do funny things if you want me to, I'm your puppet

I'll be yours to have and to hold
Darling you've got full control of your puppet

Pull another string and I'll kiss your lips, I'm your puppet
Snap your finger and I'll turn you some flips, I'm your puppet

Your every wish is my command
All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet

I'm just a toy, just a funny boy
That makes you laugh when you're blue
I'll be wonderful, do just what I'm told
I'll do anything for you
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet

Pull them little strings and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet
Make me do right or make me do wrong, I'm your puppet

Treat me good and I'll do anything
I'm just a puppet an you hold my string, I'm your puppet
Yeah, I'm your puppet

Walking, talking, living, loving puppet
I'm hanging on a string girl, I'll do anything now

I'm a walking, talking, living, loving puppet, and I love you

I'm a smiling happy face when you want me to
Even make you happy when you're feeling blueback to top

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heartback to top
Born to Lose
Duet with leonard cohen
Written by ted daffan
Available on the album duets

Born to lose
I've lived my life in vain
Every dream has only brought me pain
All my life I've always been so blue
Born to lose
And now I'm losing you

Born to lose
Oh it seems so hard to bear
When I wake and find that you're not there
Ooh you've grown tired and now you say we're through
I'm born to lose
And now I'm losing you

Born to lose
I've lived my life in vain
Every dream has only brought me pain
All my life I've always been so blue
Born to lose
And now I'm losing you
Born to lose
And now elton I'm losing youback to top
Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me
I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

It's much too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Ladies and gentlemen mr. elton john

I can't find
Oh, the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way feel
Don't discard me baby don't
Just because you think I mean you harm
Just because you think I mean you harm, oh
But these cuts I have, cuts I have
They need love
They need love, they need love to help them heal

Oh, don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
Cause' losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I that see, yeah
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free baby, oh
Cause' losing everything is like the sun going down on meback to top
Duets for One
Music by elton john
Lyrics by chris difford
Available on the album duets

Look at you, could I have been so foolish and so green
A face that smiled at every passing scene
Look at you, you're lost behind the web of woven time
When each emotion pinball in your mind

Look at me, I'm happy now I see your face and smile
I was the judge and jury at your trial
Look at me, you know the road ahead will twist and turn
Now I have the time to stand and learn

But you and I have come so far
With a shaken faith
From the pain of a broken heart
Toward feeling great
Feel like life has just begun
No more singing duets for one

I hold your picture here beside the bed
You had a party raging in your head
Look at me, I look at you with vacancy and hurt
And here today all I can do is learn

Look at me, I'm happy now I see your face and smile
I was the judge and jury at your trial
Look at me, you know the road ahead will twist and turn
Now I have the time to stand and learn

I have this picture of me looking at you
Looking at me
And I would like to say
Goodbye sweet memoryback to top
