Elton John - "Grey Seal Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Why's it never light on my lawn
Why does it rain and never say good-day to the new-born

But not as bright in life as the real one
On the big screen they showed us the sun
It's never quite the same as the real one
How does it feel
And tell me grey seal
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what's real
I never learned why meteors were formed
Tell me grey seal

If anyone can cry then so can I
I only farmed in schools that were so warn and torn

All my life is drawings from the eye
I read books and draw life from the eye
Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
Your roots were twisted then
The roots were formed by twisted roots
I was re-born before all life could die
The Phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the Phoenix bird can fly then so can I
