Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
The sun is up and the shades are all pulled down
I'm more paranoid with every little sound
Like the leaf blower blowing the leaves around
And a siren wailing on the other side of town
Oh the TVs on and the colors really hurt my head
If I could think straight I'd wish that I was dead
Or curled up naked in my lover's bed
Instead I'm hanging over Hell suspended by a single thread
chorus:
And I don't recall who said it at this time
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf he came around
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
With a rolled up note I'm hovering on that line
Three days on a diet of cocaine and wine
And a little weed just to level me sometimes
I put the clock in the drawer 'cause I've cancelled out the time
chorus:
And still that saying gets inside my mind
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf he came around
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
So don't knock on my door, don't try to call
I'm holed up in this room talking to the wall
'Cause when you're high as this you think you know it all
When you're this deep in there's no place else to fall
(repeat chorus 1)
(repeat chorus 2)
