Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
I don't make the rules around here
A tear starts at the edge
It takes two hands to rip it
It takes a lot more than either one of us has said
But I come from indecision
A place you ain't never been
Living in the state of confusion
On a map that runs like the veins under your skin
chorus:
We got misommunication kicking out the stool
We got mass determination making up the rules
But saving us is something that we can't do
And it's easier sometimes to throw a rope around a fool
And love is just another means
by which we hang ourselves
It takes two to execute
One to leave with innocence and one to leave with guilt
But I just see no reality
Just shades drawn on remorse
We've whipped this beast beyond the limit
Staggered out of breath along this course
(repeat chorus)
It's easier to lose a rope around a fool
Easier sometimes to throw a rope around a fool
A ring of your indifference thrown anywhere you choose
Easier sometimes to throw a rope around a fool
Rope around a fool
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
