Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Someone Saved My Life Tonight 

Written by:

Elton John & Bernie Taupin 

Lyrics

When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights

The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs

Prima donna lord you really should have been there

Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair

And it’s one more beer

And I don’t hear you anymore

We’ve all gone crazy lately

My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear

You almost had your hooks in me, didn’t you dear

You nearly had me roped and tied

Altar-bound, hypnotized

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You’re a butterfly

And butterflies are free to fly

Fly away, high away, bye bye

I never realized the passing hours

Of evening showers

A slip noose hanging, in my darkest dreams

I’m strangled by your haunted social scene

Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen

It’s four o’clock in the morning

Damn it! listen to me good

I’m sleeping with myself tonight

Saved in time, thank god my music’s still alive
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear

You almost had your hooks in me, didn’t you dear

You nearly had me roped and tied

Altar-bound, hypnotized

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You’re a butterfly

And butterflies are free to fly

Fly away, high away bye bye

And I would have walked head on into the deep end the river

Clinging to your stocks and bonds

Paying your h.p. demands forever

They’re coming in the morning with a truck to take me home

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved my life tonight

So save your strength and run the field you play alone
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear

You almost had your hooks in me, didn’t you dear

You nearly had me roped and tied

Altar-bound, hypnotized

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You’re a butterfly

And butterflies are free to fly

Fly away, high away, bye bye

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight
