MARY:
Don't wish it away
Don't look at it like it's forever
Between you and me I can honestly say
That things will only get better

And while I'm away
Dust out the demons inside
And it won't be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide


And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands should be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

ELTON:
Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I'm your man, Mary Mary


Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

Mary:
And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands should be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues


Mary:
Wait on me boy (EJ:Wait on me girl)
I Want You To Cry in the night if it helps(yeah)
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

Both:
And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands (time on my hands) should be time spent with you
Laughing like children (laughing like children), living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Laughing like children
Living like lovers Elton, living like lovers

And I guess that's why they call it the blues



And I guess that's why they call it the blues
