Burning Buildings – Elton John

It used to be a sweet sensation
No price too high for love
Now I pay for this bitter taste
And the price is not enough

Such cruel sport for your kicks
Such hard knocks on my heart
How long before the pain ends
Tell me where living starts

And lovers leap off burning buildings
Waking up on a sky high wire
Desperation leaves us clinging
On the edge of a house on fire

Lovers leap off burning buildings
Live our life on borrowed time
Every flame that ever moved you
Touched your lips but never mine

Lovers leap off burning buildings

No room for conversation
Cold stares and angry words
Fall in pieces from our faces
We read “do not disturb”

Some lovers just go hungry
Others beg for just a bite
You use me under pressure
To whet your appetite

Jimmie Rodgers’ Dream – Elton John

I’m looking at a funeral wagon rolling down
A two-lane highway winding past a desert town
A big blue canvas painted by the Master’s hand
The shifting clouds above and endless miles of sand
In that mirror maybe that’s what’s left of me
Wheezing like a freight train hauling sixty tons of steel
Air ’em out’s the best release and get some rest
Carrie don’t wait up for me the brakeman’s going West

[Chorus]
In this room all alone
I dream of you
In this drawer I found someone
I never knew

Now I pop a top and stay up late with Gideon
And fall asleep to visions of Meridian
I’ve seen dusty beaten delta boys cutting heads
A black face carney showman scare a song to death
In my short life I’ve seen as much as most men need
Now I’m just looking for some cleaner air to breathe

[Repeat chorus]

Far away, far away
So many years, so many days
All along this broken land
I’ve seen a lover’s empty arms
And hunger’s empty hand

[Repeat chorus]

Harmony – Elton John

Hello, baby hello
Haven’t seen your face for a while
Have you quit doing time for me
Or are you still the same spoiled child

Hello, I said hello
Is this the only place you thought to go
Am I the only man you ever had
Or am I just the last surviving friend that you know

Harmony and me
We’re pretty good company
Looking for an island
In our boat upon the sea
Harmony, gee I really love you
And I want to love you forever
And dream of the never, never, never leaving harmony

Hello, baby hello
Open up your heart and let your feelings flow
You’re not unlucky knowing me
Keeping the speed real slow
In any case I set my own pace
By stealing the show, say hello, hello

Answer In The Sky – Elton John

Well they say that it’s a fact
If you watch the sky at night
And if you stare into the darkness
You might see celestial light

And if your heart is empty
And there’s no hope inside
There’s a chance you’ll find an answer in the sky

Well they say that it’s a shame
If you have nothing to believe
And if you can’t hold on to something
You might as well die where you sleep

You don’t need a prayer
And there’s no price to ask why
Sometimes you’ll find an answer in the sky

And it’s all so much bigger than it seems
And it all overwhelms us now and then
And I’m banking on a chance we believe
That good can still control the hearts of men

Sometimes you’ll find an answer in the sky

This life’s a long old road
We shouldn’t have to walk alone
But if you find the right companion
You won’t feel so worn out when you’ve grown

All life is precious
And every day’s a prize
And sometimes you’ll find an answer in the sky
