Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Producer:Caleb Quaye
I came down here just to waste some time
To get a little rest and to ease my mind
I didn't calculate it when I walked in the door
I only thought I'd stay for a minute or more
First I saw the lights on the ceiling dim
The stale perfume yeah, and the beer can tins
My first impression was to get outside
But then I saw you crying, crying by the fireside
chorus:
The pendulum swings
Going to and fro
And the clock goes round
Says it's time to go
And the clock goes round
And the hours fly past
Slow down hands you're moving much too fast
Now it's gone kind of quiet but I seem to see
That the only people here in the room are you and me
But I don't mind girl, girl that's all right
As long as you're gonna be with me, gonna be with me all night
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
