I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me.
Frozen here on the ladder of my life.
Too late to save myself from falling.
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light
Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I
I just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me.
I can't find oh the right romantic line.
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have oh they need love to help them heal Chorus
Elton John has described this song as one of
his three favorites that he’s written, and mentions the song was influenced
by the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” and “Good Vibrations.”
It was a number one hit with George Michael and Elton John February 1, 1992.
The Captain and Tennille sang the backup on the original record (before
they were well known, although they were almost there).
