Cry To Heaven – Elton John

I found a black beret on the street today
It was lying in the gutter all torn
There’s a white flag flying on a tall building
But the kids just watch the storm

Their dirty faces pressed on the windows
Shattered glass before their eyes
There’s a mad dog barking in a burned out subway
Where the sniper sleeps at night

No birthday songs to sing again
Just bricks and stones to give them
Wrap them up in your father’s flags
And let them cry to heaven

There are many graves by a cold lake
As the beds were when your babies are born
And your rag doll sits with a permanent grin
But the kids just watch the storm

I saw a black cat tease a white mouse
Until he killed it with his claws
Seems a lot of countries do the same thing
Before they go to war

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
