Elton John - "Michelle's Song Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

(released in 1971 on Friends" soundtrack)

Cast a pebble on the water
Watch the ripples gently spreading
Tiny daughter of the Camargue
We were meant to be together
In a time it takes to grow up
We were made for one another
If only we were old enough

Then they might leave us both alone
No one's going to find us
So take my hand in your hand
Say it's great to be alive
No one's going to find us
It's wonderful so wild beneath the sky
No matter how they try

Sleeping in the open
See the shadows softly moving
Our time was never better
Take a train towards the southlands
On the door of a new life
We shall pass the sights of splendor
Whether it is wrong or it is right
It had to happen soon I guess

Watching wild horses running
We learned to be so graceful
And from those agile angels
For we watched as on the skyway
We knew the tide was turning
The herons circled slowly
Our sleepless eyes grew heavy
While we mere mortals watched them fly
