Elton John - "The North Star" lyrics

You can't always count on the prayers in your sleep But this cold light's still killing me If I pay the ransom To split the chains, slip the knots Well can they guarantee I don't know if they'll ever set you free I just can't rely on all these twisted signs Too many bright lights turn you blind Pick yourself up, throw your head back The history of the blues Seems to swim in your eyes Take a long, long look into the sky Are you out there, are you listening Is the North Star still shining Am I'm coming across to you You can listen but they're lying In the sky outside your room What you've always known Don't let them tell you It's the North Star that's the big one And it's always gonna lead you home Can't always agree on all my dumb ideas I'm still looking for a way out of here You can value what you want But you pay for change There's full moons, cold lifeless nights And tumbled stars spell out your name Think of everytime that you missed your opp click your heels, see how it feels Close your eyes, take a ride Something so childish Sometimes seems so real
