Burn Down The Mission – Elton John

You tell me there’s an angel in your tree
Did he say he’d come to call on me
For things are getting desperate in our home
Living in the parish of the restless folks I know

Everybody now bring your family down to the riverside
Look to the east to see where the fat stock hide
Behind four walls of stone the rich man sleeps
It’s time we put the flame torch to their keep

Burn down the mission
If we’re gonna stay alive
Watch the black smoke fly to heaven
See the red flame light the sky

Burn down the mission
Burn it down to stay alive
It’s our only chance of living
Take all you need to live inside

Deep in the woods the squirrels are out today
My wife cried when they came to take me away
But what more could I do just to keep her warm
Than burn burn burn burn down the mission walls

Original Sin – Elton John

Oh, it’s carnival night
And they’re stringing the lights around you
Hanging paper angels
Painting little devils on the roof

Oh the furnace wind
Is a flickering of wings about your face
In a cloud of incense
Yea, it smells like Heaven in this place

I can’t eat, can’t sleep
Still I hunger for you when you look at me
That face, those eyes
All the sinful pleasures deep inside

Tell me how, you know now, the ways and means of getting in
Underneath my skin,
Oh you were always my original sin
And tell me why, I shudder inside, every time we begin
This dangerous game
Oh you were always my original sin

A dream will fly
The moment that you open up your eyes
A dream is just a riddle
Ghosts from every corner of your life

Up in the balcony
All the Romeo’s are bleeding for your hand
Blowing theater kisses
Reciting lines they don’t understand

Shoot Down The Moon – Elton John

Oh no I don’t want it
You can take it all
I’ll put my money where my mouth is
Put your suitcase in the hall

Oh you robbed me blind
Of what little hope remained
You put a gun to my head
A bullet through my brain

You can’t shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

You can’t shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

Just as long as you’re around
We live on borrowed time
I’ll put my money where my mouth is
You’re guilty at the scene of the crime

I never say more than I need
The mystery runs deep
The dangers buried below
The secrets that you keep

Part Time Love – Elton John

Part time love is bringing me down
‘Cause I just can’t get started with you my love
Did I hear you saying that I’m too hard hearted
Wipe those stars from your eyes
And you’ll get quite a surprise
Because you’ll see everybody’s got a part time love

You’ve been seen running around
There’s not much I don’t hear of and still you try
Telling me all the things I must stay clear of
Don’t tell me what to do
When you been doing it too
Because you, me and everybody’s got a part time love

Falling, I’m falling can’t get free
Baby if you keep on stalling
Oh how can I make you see
That you, me and everybody needs a part time love

Part time love
I seem to be pulling in the wrong direction
With you my love
Whatever I do you raise the same objection
I’ve got someone at home
But she’s got a love of her own
Because you, me and everybody got a part time love

I’m waiting, I’m waiting all the time
And it’s getting so frustrating
Love well it ain’t no crime
Because you, me and everybody needs a part time love
And oh you, me and everybody’s got a part time love
And oh you, me and everybody needs a part time love
You, me, everybody got a part time love
