  • Hey there
    Look in the mirror
    Are you afraid you might see me looking at you
    Waiting, waiting at windows
    Oh it's me that you need
    Yes it's me and I'm waiting for you

    But I remain silent
    Oh I won't say a word
    I leave you to realize I'm the light in your world
    And it's me, yes it's me, yes it's me, yes it's me

    That you're needing
    It's me, yes it's me, yes it's me, yes it's me
    That you need
    Yes it's me, yes it's me, yes it's me

    If you want to be living
    I'm the one who's forgiving
    Admit that it's me that you need

    Watching, watching the swallows fly
    It all means the same
    Just like them
    You can fly home again

    But don't, no don't forget yesterday
    Pride is an ugly word girl
    And you still know my name Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
