Music by elton johnLyrics by gary osborneReleased as a uk b-side in 1982Take me down to the waterTake me back to the sourceCall the meeting to orderAnd let it run it’s courseTake me back to my childhoodWhen I was so aloneLet me feel like a child wouldLooking out across the great unknownTake me down to the oceanTake me down to the seaSet the feeling in motionForget the tied up time and let my spirit freeTake away the illusionOf the man, of the kingHelp me lose the confusionSo I can breathe againTake me down to the oceanTake me down to the seaSet the feeling in motionSo you can just be you and I can just be meThat’s how I need to be
