Elton John – You Can Make History lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the 1996 us album love songs

I can feel the time closing in
I can feel the years crawling through my skin
And if i doubt myself i can count on the rain
To cover the tears of this aging game

But i can count on you to play your part
I don't miss a beat of your animal heart
And when you push from behind i know i can
Cover a mountain with the palm of my hand

And oh babe, you can make history young again
You could rewrite, you could decide
The things that should or shouldn't have been
You could look at me in the scheme of things
Oh babe, you could make history young again

I can watch the weeks sweeping by
I can recollect the hearts hanging out to dry
When the world shuts down i can touch my fears
I can hear lost youth ringing in my ears

But i lost nothing when i gained you
You just blew me away with yesterdays news
When you run your fingers down my spine
It's like throwing a switch on the hands of time

Ancient minds, ancient lives
Got a way of coming around
If i knew then what i know now
I'd make it back to you somehow
