Music by elton johnlyrics by bernie taupinnever releasedi came down here just to waste some timeto get a little rest and to ease my mindi didn’t calculate it when I walked in the doori only thought I’d stay for a minute or morefirst I saw the lights on the ceiling dimthe stale perfume yeah, and ___________My first impression was to get outsidebut then I saw you crying, crying by the firesidethe pendulum swingsgoig to and froand the clock goes roundsays it’s time to goand the clock goes roundand the hours fly pastslow down pendulum you’re moving much too fastnow it’s gone kind of quiet but I seem to seethat the only people here in the room are you and mebut I don’t mind girl, girl that’s all rightas long as you’re gonna be with me, gonna be with me all night
