Mandalay Again (Elton John)

Rules and regulations, And real estate are things I've left behind Fights are always leaving Silver wings unfolding on a dime But I won't foget to tell you If I could only reconnect the line I really never knew you, but come back I'd like to find the time Drug and consequences And ferris wheels just took us up and down Fights were always brewing Two perfect understudies for a clown If I could piece it all together Or maybe find you through a friend Last I heard it was St. Louis But I wish that it was Mandalay Again Come back I'd like to find the time Plant a seed and raise a little Cain Come back we'll throw a rope around the moon And pretend that we're in Mandalay Again Fuel and information Are Siamese twins who poison everything Lies that left us drowing Rumor that burned like gasoline I could have read you like a book Instead I acted dumb and blind I was younger then and foolish Come back I'd like to find the time Come back I'd like to find the time Plant a seed and raise a little Cain Come back we'll throw a rope around the moon And pretend that we're in Mandalay again It it wasn't in the afterglow of wine Or the chatter of some European girl I'd have understood that after all these years There were those who chose to separate our worlds Separate our worlds Come back I'd like to find the time Plant a seed and raise a little Cain Come back we'll throw a rope around the moon And pretend that we're in Mandalay again And pretend that we're in Mandalay again We'll pretend that we're in Madalay again
