My Heart Dances Lyrics

by Elton John

I see you in the distance and I see us as we are
So nearly so contented, but a careless word too far
I see you in confusion for a once enchanted boy
My heart dances, oh, oh, but not for joy

I longed to love you better but I swear I don't know how
You could have been my future but I had to have it now
The things we love completely we are fated to destroy
My heart dances, oh, oh, but not for joy

It's easy to be certain that another's heart will fall
Much harder to be certain of your own
It moves you, and inspires you then it drives you to the wall
And leaves you so excited but alone

My heart dances, oh, oh
My heart dances, oh, oh
My heart dances, oh, oh, but not for joy

But not for joy
But not for joy
But not for joy
