Hoop Of Fire (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin You say that all you want are the simple things Long walks on lonely beaches, guitars with nylon strings But underneath you'd rather leap through a hoop of fire You shy away from lips that want, that want to kiss you Tongue-tied on formal evenings, wealth don't impress you But if you ask me you like the heat in a hoop of fire And it's hard to read just how you feel or what your dreams desire Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire No late nights making love in secret places You feel pressure all around you, mistrust in strangers faces But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire
