Mandalay Again

Elton John a Bernie Taupin

Text písně

Rules and regulations,
And real estate are things
I’ve left behind,
Flights are always leaving,
Silver wings unfolding on a dime,
But I won’t forget to tell you,
If I could only reconnect the line,
I really never knew you,
But come back I’d like to find the time

Drugs and consequences,
And ferris wheels just took us up and down,
Fights were always brewing,
Two perfect understudies for a clown,
If I could piece it all together,
Or maybe find you through a friend,
Last I heard it was St. Louis,
But I wish that it was Mandalay again

Come back I’d like to find the time,
Plant a seed and raise a little Cain,
Come back we’ll throw a rope around the moon,
And pretend that we’re in Mandalay again

Fuel and information,
Are Siamese twins who poison everything,
Lies that left us drowning,
Rumor that burned like gasoline,
I could have read you like a book,
Instead I acted dumb and blind,
I was younger then and foolish,
Come back I’d like to find the time

Come back I’d like to find the time,
Plant a seed and raise a little Cain,
Come back we’ll throw a rope around the moon,
And pretend that we’re in Mandalay again

If it wasn’t in the afterglow of wine,
Or the chatter of some European girl,
I’d have understood that after all these years,
There were those who chose to separate our worlds,
Separate our worlds
