Elton John - Your Song

It is so amazing where a song can take you.

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

Your Song was from high school for me. I remeber dancing with my then best friend at a dance. I miss him terribly. Funny how just a year in my life so long ago, still has me connected to a person I haven't spoken with in years and years. He was such a great guy.

But there are so many songs that do that for me. Not just the old ones, but current ones, too. I will always remember Sam and Anna singing so loudly and off key in the backseat. Don't even get me started on Yesterday by the Beatles or America by Neal Diamond. Any Shrek song will do it too!

Music is and always will be an important part of my life.
