Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinNever releasedSee my eyes and I see my armsThe seagulls say you’ve goneIt was just a game of let’s pretendAnd I whistle to the waves that lend me tearsPurple clouds, golden rainYesterday has goneAnd a dandelion dies in the windIf you’re quick enough to riseWith the sleep still in your eyesYou’ll see the shadow of the sun above my mindI know that only you can help me nowPurple clouds, golden rainYesterday has goneAnd a dandelion dies in the windBut a dandelion sighsAnd it tries to tell the windThat crying’s not a bad thingWorrying is a sinIf they sent a cloud from heavenI would ride into the skiesTo escape all of my troublesAnd to cast away your liesPurple rains have turn to goldThe clouds of yesterdayAnd a dandelion dies in the windI see my eyes and I see my armsThe seagulls say you’ve goneIt was just a game of let’s pretendAnd I whistle to the waves that lend me tearsPurple clouds, golden rainYesterday has goneAnd a dandelion dies in the wind
