Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinAvailable on the soundtrack the museWhen I can’t find words and wisdom in my lifeAnd barriers aboundShould I feel blinded by the lightKnee deep up to my neck in heavy waterI conjure up my museShe’s my means to achieve a simple quotaWhen it’s make or breakMake no mistakeShe appears like lightening in a bottleI catch the sparkOh she lights the darkThe knot’s undone the ideas comeLike two hands on a throttleThere’s a place of one way streets and doubtNo red lights ever changeWe wind up with no exit outFacts are facts and stumbling blocks delay the mindThat’s when my muse arrivesTo sew loose ends up in time
