Elton John - "Between Seventeen Twenty" lyrics

Music by elton john, davey johnstone, and caleb quaye

Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album blue moves

I wonder whos sleeping in your sheets tonight
Whose head rests upon the bed

Could it be a close friend I knew so well

Who seems to be so close to you instead

Close to you instead

Im blue tonight, Im red when Im mad

Im green when Im jealous, yellow when Im sad

So much has flown between the years
I guess I cannot have everything
When I was twenty and you were seventeen

So out of choice I chose rock and roll

But it pushed me to the limit everyday

It turned me into a gypsy, kept me away from home
From there on, there seemed no use for you

For you to stay

And if I shower around 3 a.m.

Its just to wash away

The trace of a love unwanted

Oh in the times I went astray
The times I went astray

So much has flown between the years
When I was twenty and you were seventeen
