Elton John - "Last Song" lyrics

The Last Song
Elton John
Yesterday you came to lift me up

Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall
Music by Elton John/Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
As light as straw and brittle as a bird
Just one more whisper of a voice unheard
As fear grows please hold me in your arms
Tomorrow leave the windows open

I need your gentle hands to keep me calm
Won't you help me if you can to shake this anger
'Cause I never thought I'd lose

I never dreamed I'd feel
I only thought I'd win
This fire beneath my skin
I can't believe you love me
I never thought you'd come
I guess I misjudged love
Between a father and his son

The hidden truth no longer haunting me
That kind of understanding sets me free Things we never said come together
Tonight we touched on the things that were never spoken
