mutual missUNDERstanding

“Sleeping With The Past”

Like a thief he’s come, like a thief he’s gone
He’s stolen your tears one by one
You’re proud to love him, it’s a foolish sign
You’re a broken heart at the scene of the crime

And the night drags on, and the fever burns
Come to your senses, everybody learns
You sleep in sweet fire lost and blue
You’re an empty doll in the power of a fool

Don’t go sleeping with the past
Don’t go praying he’ll come back
Take a deep breath and deny
You could love a man like that

Don’t go sleeping with the past
Don’t go waking with a dream
There’s no tenderness that’s left
In the cracks you step between

If it looks like rain, if it makes no sound
It’s an echo of pain on common ground
Love’s like a junkie, addiction’s a fact
Passion’s a monkey you can’t keep off your back

But he takes love and he turns it cold
He’s just an iceman honey, ain’t got no heart of gold
But he sees you and he runs from you
Come on and shake this shadow that you’re clinging to
And he’ll hurt you
And he’ll run from you
Come on and shake this shadow that you’re clinging to

written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin

“Sacrifice”

It’s a human sign

When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation’s strong

Into the boundary
Of each married man
Sweet deceit comes calling
And negativity lands

Cold cold heart
Hard done by you
Some things look better baby
Just passing through

not done yetAnd it’s no sacrifice
Just a simple word
It’s two hearts living
In two separate worlds
But it’s no sacrifice
No sacrifice
It’s no sacrifice at all

Mutual misUNDERstanding
After the fact
Sensitivity builds a prison
In the final act

We lose direction
No stone unturned
No tears to damn you
When jealousy burns
