Elton John - "Empty Sky Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I'm not a rat to be spat on locked up in this room
Everyday the swallows play in the clouds of love
Make me wish that I had wings take me high above
Those bars that look towards the sun at night look towards the moon

And I looked high and saw the empty sky
I'd drift with them in endless space

If I could only, I could only fly
But no man flies from this place
The cold night air comes creeping in and home seems oh so far
At night I lay upon my bench and stare towards the stars
If only I could swing upon those twinkling dots above
I'd look down from the heavens upon the ones I love

Hey the lucky locket hangs around your precious neck
Some luck I ever got with you and I wouldn't like to bet

That sooner or later you'll own just one half of this land
By shining your eyes on the wealth of every man
Now I've got myself in this room for years
#############################################I don't see no one, I never see anyone
Just send up my love ain't seen nothing but tears
