An unreleased demo out-take from the 1990s.
Music:Elton John (?)
Lyrics:Bernie Taupin (?)
Past imperfect, passion's gone
Hey it's hardly worth it if I sing this song
Bittersweet, cold and cruel
Envy and I, me and you
Past imperfect, loves to hate
Hey it's a long, long drop from heaven's gate
Past imperfect, the dream she dies
Our nerves exposed, let's say goodbye
chorus:
'Cause nobody's worth it
I say it but I lie
We're past imperfect
But I wish we'd try
Skin so thick
But love runs deep
It outweighs the difference
Between you and me
Even if we might be, might be, might be
Past imperfect
Reason's being, what - I forget
Hey we walked the wire without a net
A selfish war, on a jealous path
Some men plan, and God laughs
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
