Circle Of Life – Elton John

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

Slow Down Georgie (She’s Poison) – Elton John

Hey there Georgie got a couple of things to say
One you’re my friend, and two it’s hurting me
Seeing you act this way
But my hands are tied and I can only try to talk you out of a fall
`Cause the reputation of the woman you’re dating’s
About as nasty as the Berlin wall

Slow down Georgie she’s poison
Man you’ve got to watch yourself
She’s gonna get in your head, she’s gonna crawl in your bed
You’re just a stepping stone for someone else

Slow down Georgie she’s poison
She’s just another divorcee
An undercover lover of a hundred
Other little fish in the sea

You better cut her loose before she gets her hooks in you
If you give her the world, and it was covered in pearls
She’d only ask for the moon
She’s got you hypnotised, with her big brown eyes
And a body that could stop a clock
But if you think your face ain’t gonna be replaced
Georgie boy you’re in for a shock

Well it ain’t my job to rain on your parade
But if the chips were down, you’d do the same for me
It’s always been that way
She’s got you paralysed with a pack of lies
About honour and the single girl
And if you buy that line you must be out of your mind
You must be living in another world

The Last Song – Elton John

Yesterday you came to lift me up
As light as straw and brittle as a bird
Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall
Just one more whisper of a voice unheard

Tomorrow leave the windows open
As fear grows please hold me in your arms
Won’t you help me if you can to shake this anger
I need your gentle hands to keep me calm

`Cause I never thought I’d lose
I only thought I’d win
I never dreamed I’d feel
This fire beneath my skin
I can’t believe you love me
I never thought you’d come
I guess I misjudged love
Between a father and his son

Things we never said come together
The hidden truth no longer haunting me
Tonight we touched on the things that were never spoken
That kind of understanding sets me free

Western Ford Gateway – Elton John

It’s hard to feel what’s in your head
Where the gas lamps grow
And the garbage blows
Around the paper stands

And a baby cried
And I saw a light
And I wondered where
And I wondered why
There’d be a loss of life
Down here tonight

Down on Western Ford Gateway
That’s a place where the dead say
That a man lives no more
That his fair share of days
Down on Western Ford Gateway

It flowed upon the cobbled floor
For the bottle’s dead
And they’re drunk again
By the tavern door
