Last updated: 08/16/2007 11:00:00 AM

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Performed with Heather Headley, Adam Pascal and Sherie Scott
From the album Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida

(Amneris)
It's so strange he doesn't show me
More affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful,
Never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine
I'm not always on his mind
He's not thinking what I'm thinking,
Always half a step behind
Always half a step behind
Ohhh
Ohhh
Ohhh

(Rademes)
I'm in every kind of trouble,
Can't you tell, just look at me
Half ecstatic, half dejected,
All in all I'm all at sea
Easy turms I thought I wanted,
Fill me now with chilling dread
You can never know the chaos,
Of a life turned on it's head
Of a life turned on it's head
Ohh
(Rademes) (Amneres)
Ohh (Ohh)
Ohh (Ohh)

(Aida)
I am certain that I love him,
but a love can be misplaced.
have I compromised my people
In my passon and my haste?
I could be his life companion,
Anywhere but where we are.
Am i a leader? Am I a traiter?
Did I take a step to far?
Did I take a step to far?

(each verse in a round)
(Amneres)
It's so strange he doesn't show me
More affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful,
Never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine
I'm not always on his mind
He's not thinking what I'm thinking,
Always half a step behind
Always half a step behind

(Rademes)
I'm in every kind of trouble,
Can't you tell, just look at me
Half ecstatic, half dejected,
All in all I'm all at sea
Easy turms I thought I wanted,
Fill me now with chilling dread
You can never know the chaos,
Of a life turned on it's head
Of a life turned on it's head


(Aida)
I am certain that I love him,
but a love can be misplaced.
have I compromised my people
In my passon and my haste?
I can be his life companion,
Anywhere but where we are.
Am i a leader? Am I a traiter?
Did I take a step to far?
Did I take a step to far?

(Aida)
Ohh
(Aida and Rademes)
Ohh
(all three)
Ohh
Ohh

Ohh
Ohh
Ohh

Did I take a step to far?

The Triangle Of Love | Reviewer: Megan | 8/16/2007

This song is so amazng its a mixture between true love and forbidden fate I guess. IT HAS LOTS OF HARMONY IN IT AND IT'S INCREDIBLE.
