Don’t Let the Sun go Down on Me
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
I can’t light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I’m growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light
Don’t let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
I can’t find, oh the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don’t discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal
Music by Elton John.
This cover was sang by Oleta Adams. This video does not do anything for me, but who cares? The singing, man, the singing! When I first heard this version, and the Elton John original was no slouch by far, I believe I ovulated. And I am a guy. It is that good.
