Music by elton johnLyrics by tim riceFrom the soundtrack the road to el doradoI see you in the distance and I see us as we areSo nearly so contented but a careless word too farI see you in confusion for a once enchanted boyMy heart dances, oh oh, but not for joyI longed to love you better but I swear I don’t know howYou could have been my future but I had to have it nowThe things we love completely we are fated to destroyMy heart dances, oh oh, but not for joyIt’s easy to be certain that another’s heart will fallMuch harder to be certain of your ownIt moves you, and inspires you then it drives you to the wallAnd leaves you so excited but aloneMy heart dances, oh ohMy heart dances, oh ohMy heart dances, oh oh, but not for joyBut not for joyBut not for joyBut not for joy
