Freaks In Love

Album: Peachtree Road (2004)
  • Me and you we're not that pretty
    Me and you could use a lift
    I'm out here on the corner crying
    I got ribbons but I got no gift

    Me and you we're all we've got
    Me and you could be our curse
    We've got bleeding hearts and flowers
    You got strings but you got no purse

    We're just freaks in love
    Saints above
    Shine on our sweet life
    Happy is the union
    Of fools and freaks alike

    And fearless are the idiots
    Among the hawks and doves
    We're on the outside looking in
    A couple of freaks in love

    There's a wonder in this weakness
    It's so beautiful sometimes
    Across the universe we're lightning
    In the race we're a step behind

    Me and you we're not for everyone
    Me and you we're damaged goods
    We're antique and unacceptable
    And just misunderstood

    We're just freaks in love
    Saints above
    Shine on our sweet life
    Happy is the union
    Of fools and freaks alike

    And fearless are the idiots
    Among the hawks and doves
    We're on the outside looking in
    A couple of freaks in love

    We're just freaks in love
    Saints above
    Shine on our sweet life
    Happy is the union
    Of fools and freaks alike

    And fearless are the idiots
    Among the hawks and doves
    We're on the outside looking in
    A couple of freaks in love

    We're on the outside looking in
    A couple of freaks in love Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
