I Can't Steer My Heart Clear Of You (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin Take me for granted, I think that I could stand it After all these rough seas Left me reckless and abandoned Say the spirits willing, chance a new beginning Break down the cold front Give me peace and understanding And you wait, and you wonder Will she still beat the drum and bring the thunder Will she still be the star to see me through 'Cause I can't steer my heart clear of you No I can't steer my heart clear of you It's the way it's been, ever since you sailed Out of a storm and into view And should I drift away, the compass holds the clue You control the weather And I can't steer my heart clear of you Make me your penance, show me your innocence Everything is history From the aching to the pleasure We enjoy the torture, the slow pain that it taught us Everything gets twisted Let me burn or bring me water
