Elton John - "Grey Seal (Original B-Side)" lyrics

Why's it never light on my lawn

Why does it rain and never say good day to the new dawn

On the big screen they showed us a sun
But not as bright in life as the real one

It's never quite the same as the real one

And tell me grey seal how does it feel to be so wise

To see through eyes that only see what's real

Tell me grey seal

I never learned why meteors were formed
I only farmed in schools that were so worn and torn

I read books and draw life from the eye
If anyone can cry then so can I

All my life is drawings from the eye
And tell me grey seal how does it feel to be so wise

To see through eyes that only see what's real

Tell me grey seal

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
The roots were formed by twisted roots

Your roots were twisted then
I was reborn before all life could die

The Phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the Phoenix bird can fly then so can I

And tell me grey seal how does it feel to be so wise

To see through eyes that only see what's real
Tell me grey seal

Tell me grey seal how does it feel

Tell me grey seal how does it feel
Tell me grey seal how does it feel
