Grey Seal

Without doubt one of the best lyricists ever, has to be Bernie Taupin, and Elton matched his words with great tunes.

Music Elton John Word Bernie Taupin

Whys it never light on my lawn
Why does it rain and never say good-day to the new-born
On the big screen they showed us the sun
But not as bright in life as the real one
Its never quite the same as the real one

And tell me grey seal
How does it feel
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see whats real
Tell me grey seal

I never learned why meteors were formed
I only farmed in schools that were so warn and torn
If anyone can cry then so can i
I read books and draw life from the eye
All my life is drawings from the eye

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
The roots were formed by twisted roots
Your roots were twisted then
I was re-born before all life could die
The phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the phoenix bird can fly then so can i

  1. Hmm we love the Phoenix always 🙂 Fab lyrics, tend to agree – they are the perfect partnership in a sense. 😀
