Elton John - "Nikita" lyrics

Hey Nikita is it cold In your little corner of the world You could roll around the globe And never find a warmer soul to know

Oh I saw you by the wall Ten of your tin soldiers in a row With eyes that looked like ice on fire The human heart a captive in the snow
Oh Nikita You will never know anything about my home I'll never know how good it feels to hold you Nikita I need you so Oh Nikita is the other side of any given line in time Counting ten tin soldiers in a row Oh no, Nikita you'll never know

Do you ever dream of me Do you ever see the letters that I write When you look up through the wire Nikita do you count the stars at night

And if there comes a time Guns and gates no longer hold you in And if you're free to make a choice Just look towards the west and find a friend
