Elton John - "In Neon Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Lipstick and lashes, the traces of stardom
Lit up on a billboard so everyone sees them in neon
Behind the counter she stares out the window
Up at the billboard that's like a reminder in neon
She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
For two cents of danger she'd trust anybody

Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
She'd smoke like a gun if it meant she might wind up
In neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies

In neon the name's gone there's no reason why anymore
Trust them and wind up alone behind a locked door
A shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie

In neon, in neon
A hot cup of coffee held in her fingers
Pictures and patterns, the touches of glamour
A perfect complexion that lingers above her in neon

Cut into a fashion that flashes above them in neon
She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
For a shot at the title, she'd slip into something
She'd smoulder like ashes if it meant she might wind up in neon

In neon
