Elton John - "On A Dark Street" lyrics

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

`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
Sleeping on the concrete
Living on Dark Street
Looking for an exit
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

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

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