Elton John - "On Dark Street" lyrics

I'm staring down a mile of disappearing track Is this the best that we could do I'm leaning through the rain but you ain't looking back What did I ever have to prove

`Cause it feels like electricity hitting an open field When am I ever gonna to learn Married life's two people trying to grab the wheel
Oh and we must have got lost Living on Dark Street Looking for an exit Sleeping on the concrete You can't see it with your eyes You can't find it with your feet All I know is that we're lost baby And we're living on Dark Street

All the layoffs and the pay cuts cripple me inside I pay the price for living everyday Trying to keep us all together along with a little pride What'll it take to make you stay

But I've dreamed about an island And all I got's a bucket of sand I'd give my eyes to give you all your dreams Now I get to see my family slipping through my hands
