Wouldn’t Have You Any Other Way (NYC) – Elton John

I remember it like it was yesterday
Snow in the park and skaters on the ice
Long black cars standing side-by-side
Loading up the boys at night

Turned up our collars to the chill of the wind
Caught an innocent smile from a taxi at the lights
Not something you’d see on a New York street
It’s such an uncommon sight

[chorus:]
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
This city’s got a thing about it, don’t try to understand it
New York City I’d really like to stay
New York City I wouldn’t have you
I wouldn’t have you any other way

Oh the subway rumbled underneath
Italian lights where Joey Gallo died
And the man on the door down at 54’s
Letting only the pretty inside

I’d wake with a stranger under the covers
Late in the day and longing for the night
Just like the snowfall there’s so many bodies
But somehow it feels so right

[repeat chorus]

Shooting Star – Elton John

I’m still in love with you oh shooting star
And when I start to wonder where you are
There you are, there you are, shooting star

You may have seen me at the early show
I sat and watched you from the second row
Oh you were mine long ago way back when
Even then we both knew you’d go far oh shooting star

And with the spotlight shining in your eyes
It’s sometimes hard to find your way
But maybe some night you might
Think of me, shooting star

And when that moment comes at last
And you remember who you are
Here I’ll be, shooting star, shooting star
Here I’ll be, shooting star, shooting star, shooting star

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
