Ballad Of The Boy In The Red Shoes

Elton John a Bernie Taupin

Text písně

I'm stoned in the twilight
Screaming on the inside
Give me your water
Help me survive

Gonna miss the sunlight
When I lose my eyesight
Give me my red shoes
I want to dance

They searched for an answer
But that old man wouldn't listen
Back then I was handsome
Back then he was ignorant

And shave off the years now
It's all inside my head
The boy in the red shoes is dancing by my bed
Put them in a box somewhere
Put them in a drawer
Take my red shoes
I can't wear them anymore

Had garlands in the wings back then
All the pretty little things back then
Calling out my name
Oh what fame brings

After curtain calls and bows
I can't see the front row now
Hand me my red shoes
Just one more time

They pushed aside our presence
They refused to go the distance
Back then I was Sigmund
Back then he wouldn't listen


Kam dál?
