Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Producer:Caleb Quaye
Bonnie bridged the gap too many times
She didn't know what I was thinking
She crossed too many bridges and she swam too many pools
Before she realized just what a fool she'd been
chorus:
Now Bonnie's gone away
Pretending she don't understand the things I say
Like the world's too square
And you're not here and you're not there
Before me in my eyes
To torture me and tell no lies
Now Bonnie's gone away
She plays with matches and gets burned too many times
She'll never learn that fire burns and water boils
And blows my mind in two
What can I do
(repeat chorus)
Bring back, bring back, bring back Bonnie to me
Bring back, bring back, bring back my Bonnie to me
And your love is like a thistle with no thorns
No ins or outs or roundabouts
Now Bonnie's gone away
Bonnie bridged the gap too many times
She didn't know what I was thinking
She laughed instead of cried
And when she told a lie
She admitted that she'd had here way with me
(repeat chorus)
