Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Producer:Caleb Quaye
See my eyes and see my arms
The seagulls say you've gone
It was just a game of let's pretend
And I whistle to the waves that lend me tears
chorus:
Purple clouds, golden rain
Yesterday has gone
And a dandelion dies in the wind
If you're quick enough to rise
With the sleep still in your eyes
You'll see the shadow of the sun above my mind
For the sea of tears is drowning me
I cannot feel, I cannot see
I cannot feel, I cannot see
I know that only you can help me now
(repeat chorus)
But a dandelion sighs
And he tries to tell the wind
That crying's not a bad thing
But worrying is a sin
If they sent a cloud from heaven
I would ride into the skies
To escape all of my troubles
And to cast away your lies
Purple rains have turn to gold
The clouds of yesterday
And a dandelion dies in the wind
I see my eyes and see my arms
The seagulls say you've gone
It was just a game of let's pretend
And I whistle to the waves that lend me tears
(repeat chorus)
