Elton John - "Slow Rivers Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

The weather man he looks confused
Shakes his fist at the sky like you used to do

But you don't remember things like that do you
The balance was uneven but I'm breaking through

Slow rivers run cold
Shallow waters never sank so low

I thought I'd drown and you'd never know
You're a slow river and you run so cold
The winter here don't believe in God
The bitter wind just bites through me like a wild dog
I still see your eyes tonight like headlights through the fog

But one foot in your door oh that's all I ever got

Chances are you'll reappear

Swim my way in a flood of tears

You're a sinking ship with no place to go
No place to hide your conscience so
