Easy As Life – Elton John

This is the moment when the gods expect me
To beg for help but I won’t even try
I want nothing in the world but myself to protect me
But I won’t lie down, roll over and die

All I have to do is to forget how much I love him
All I have to do is put my longing to one side
Tell myself that love’s an ever-changing situation
Passion would have cooled and all the magic would have died

It’s easy, it’s easy

Until I think about him as he was when I last saw him
And how he would have been were I to be with him today
Tender in his manner and my self-consolation
All I ever wanted and I’m throwing it away

It’s easy, easy as life

All I have to do is to pretend I never knew him
On those very rare occasions when he steals into my heart
Better to have lost him when the ties were barely binding
Better the contempt of the familiar cannot start

It’s easy, it’s easy

Until I think about him as he was when I last touched him
And how he would have been were I to be with him today
Those very rare occasions don’t let up, they keep on coming
All I ever wanted and I’m throwing it away

It’s easy, it’s easy as life

And then I see the faces of a worn defeated people
A father and a nation who won’t let a coward run
Is this how the gods reward the faithful through the ages
Forcing us to prove that all the hardest things we’ve done

READ  Too Many Tears - Elton John

Are easy, so easy

And though I’ll think about him until the earth draws in around me
And though I choose to leave him for another kind of love
This is no denial, no betrayal, but redemption
Redeemed in my own eyes and in the pantheon above

It’s easy, it’s easy, it’s easy as life

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
