Music by elton johnlyrics by bernie taupinreleased as a uk b-side in 1998Oh I’ve been staying up nightsthinking about a long flight that could take me homeor a slow train rollingor a big boat floating out there on that lonely oceani’m not the man I wasi guess the dark side lost and the sun broke throughi thought I knew it alli was the next big thing until I thought about youoh I was reaching for the starswhen I wasn’t even touching youi was lying to myself, I needed no one’s helpthought I was living proofwhen there’s one set of footstepsno one’s gonna fill your shoesnow I’m looking in the mirrorat a big man in a little suiti’m a big man in a little suitit’s tight on me, hard on youit’s a short cut but it’s a long way homewhen you think you can make it on you ownyou think you’re bulletproofbut what you really areis a big man in a little suiti was part of the chaina face with no name in a place with no soulby a thief in the nighti was robbed of the light and left nothing, nothing to holdi’ve turned my back on a world like thati want to get back to loving yougive me one more chancewon’t you warm the hands of this cold headed fool
