Elton John - "The North Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Have you seen the North

That cold grey place

Don't want its shadow anymore

On my face
A man grows bitter
We're a bitter race

Some of us never get to see

A better place

In the Northern Skies

There was a steel cloud

It used to follow me around

But I don't see it now

And a little farmhouse
There's a farm in the rain
There were a young man's eyes

Looking south

The North was my mother

But I no longer need her

You trade your roots and your dust

For a face in the river

To a different shore

And a driven rain that washes you

But my North can't hold me anymore
There's a North in us all
