  • I can't really explain it
    I haven't got the words
    It's a feeling that you can't control
    I suppose its like forgetting
    Losing who you are
    And at the same time
    Something makes you whole
    Its like that there's a music
    Playing in your ear
    And I'm listening, and I'm listening
    And then I disappear

    And then I feel a change
    Like a fire deep inside
    Something bursting me wide open
    Impossible to hide

    And suddenly I'm flying
    Flying like a bird
    Like electricity
    Electricity
    Sparks inside of me
    And I'm free, I'm free

    It's a bit like being angry
    It's a bit like being scared
    Confused and all mixed up
    And mad as hell
    It's like when you've been crying
    And you're empty, and you're full
    I don't know what it is
    It's hard to tell

    Its like that there's some music
    Playing in your ear
    But the music
    Is impossible
    Impossible to hear

    But then I feel it move me
    Like a burning deep inside
    Something bursting me wide open
    Impossible to hide

    Then suddenly I'm flying
    Flying like a bird
    Like electricity
    Electricity
    Sparks inside of me
    And I'm free, I'm free

    Electricity
    Sparks inside of me
    And I'm free, I'm free
    Oh oh whoa
    I'm free Writer/s: ELTON JOHN, LEE HALL
