Music by elton johnLyrics by tim riceElton’s solo version is unreleasedWe all lead such elaborate livesWild ambitions in our sightsHow an affair of the heart survivesDays apart and hurried nightsSeems quite unbelievable to meI don’t want to live like thatSeems quite unbelievable to meI don’t want to love like thatI just want our time to be slower and gentler, wiser, freeWe all live in extravagant timesPlaying games we can’t all winUnintended emotional crimesTake some out, take others inI’m so tired of all we’re going throughI don’t want to live like thatI’m so tired of all we’re going throughI don’t want to love like thatI just want to be with you now and forever, peaceful, trueI wish I had the courageTo tell you face to faceBut I could wait foreverFor the perfect time and placeWe all live such elaborate livesWe don’t know whose words are trueStrangers, lovers, husbands, wivesHard to know whose loving whoToo many choices tear us apartI don’t want to live like thatToo many choices tear us apartI don’t want to love like thatI just want to touch your heart, may this confession be the start
