Elton's Song Lyrics

by Elton John

Staring all alone at your grace and style
Cut me to the bone with your razor blade smile
I watched you playing pool
It's all around the school that I love you

I love your gypsy hair and dark brown eyes
Always unprepared for your pointed replies
Cynical and lean
I lie awake and dream about you

If you only knew
What I'm going through
Time and again I get ashamed
To say your name

It's hard to grin and bear
When you're standing there
My lips are dry
I catch your eye and look away

Sitting in my room, I've got it bad
Crying for the moon
They think I'm mad, they say it isn't real
But I know what I feel and I love you

If you only knew
What I'm going through
Time and again I get ashamed
To say your name

It's hard to grin and bear
When you're standing there
My lips are dry
I catch your eye and look away

Sitting in my room, got it bad
Crying for the moon
They think I'm mad but I would give my life
For a single night beside you
