Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Elton John

When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights 
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna, lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer
And I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you, dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away 
High away, bye, bye

I never realised the passing hours
Of evening showers a slip-noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it, listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive

And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you, dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away 
High away, bye, bye

And I would have walked 
Head on into the deep end the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever
They're coming in the morning 
With a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight 
Someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight 
Someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone 
     
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you, dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away 
High away 
Bye, bye 

Someone saved my life tonight....
