Elton John - "Burning Buildings Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

It used to be a sweet sensation

No price too high for love
Now I pay for this bitter taste

And the price is not enough

Such cruel sport for your kicks

Such hard knocks on my heart

How long before the pain ends
Tell me where living starts

And lovers leap off burning buildings
Waking up on a sky high wire

Desperation leaves us clinging

On the edge of a house on fire

Lovers leap off burning buildings
Live our life on borrowed time

Every flame that ever moved you

Touched your lips but never mine

Lovers leap off burning buildings

No room for conversation
Cold stares and angry words

Fall in pieces from our faces

Some lovers just go hungry

We read do not disturb"

Others beg for just a bite

You use me under pressure
To whet your appetite
