Elton John - "Michelle's Song" lyrics

Cast a pebble on the water Watch the ripples gently spreading Tiny daughter of the Camargue We were meant to be together We were made for one another In a time it takes to grow up If only we were old enough Then they might leave us both alone

So take my hand in your hand Say it's great to be alive No one's going to find us No matter how they try No one's going to find us It's wonderful so wild beneath the sky

Sleeping in the open See the shadows softly moving Take a train towards the southlands Our time was never better We shall pass the sights of splendor On the door of a new life It had to happen soon I guess Whether it is wrong or it is right

We learned to be so graceful Watching wild horses running And from those agile angels We knew the tide was turning For we watched as on the skyway The herons circled slowly While we mere mortals watched them fly Our sleepless eyes grew heavy
