Elton John - "Hoop Of Fire Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

You say that all you want are the simple things
But underneath you'd rather leap through a hoop of fire
You shy away from lips that want, that want to kiss you
Tongue-tied on formal evenings, wealth don't impress you

Long walks on lonely beaches, guitars with nylon strings
And it's hard to read just how you feel or what your dreams desire
But if you ask me you like the heat in a hoop of fire
Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire
Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire
But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire
No late nights making love in secret places

But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire
You feel pressure all around you, mistrust in strangers faces
