Elton John - "Go It Alone Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

It's so hard to say goodbye
When this house is just a hill of bones
Where you and I once lived
When there's nothing left to give
If we put it back together
By the skin of our teeth
You'd still pull it all apart
Bit by bit, piece by piece

And I'll go it alone
Call this house my home
Build it up again with someone new
Till I find a girl that fits
Build it brick by brick

When you count your phony schemes
And the cars you drive to buy your friends
This home's a whole lot better without you
There's no passion alive
If the cards on the table
They don't ever come back clean
Always turn up spades
The cards that always cheat the hearts
The spades you play just dug my grave
