The Muse Lyrics

by Elton John

When I can't find words and wisdom in my life
And barriers abound, should I feel blinded by the light
Knee deep up to my neck in heavy water, I conjure up my muse
She's my means to achieve a simple quota

When it's make or break, oh make no mistake
Oh she appears like a lightening in a bottle
I catch the spark, oh and she lights the dark
The knot's undone, oh the ideas come
Like two hands on a throttle

There's a place of one way streets and doubt
No red lights ever change, we wind up with no exit out
Facts are facts and stumbling blocks delay the mind
That's when my muse arrives, to sew loose ends up in time

When it's make or break, oh make no mistake
She appears like a lightening in a bottle, yeah
I catch the spark, oh and she lights the dark
The knot's undone, oh the ideas come yeah
Like two hands on a throttle

When it's make or break, oh make no mistake
She appears like a lightening in a bottle
I catch the spark, oh and she lights the dark
The knot's undone, oh the ideas come yeah
Like two hands on a throttle
Oh like two hands on a throttle
