The Wide-Eyed And Laughing Lyrics - Elton John

Review The Song (1)

Music by Elton John, Caleb Quaye, James Newton-Howard and Davey Johnstone
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

Are you still in control of the boat that you row
Or do you still cling to me when its sinking
I never condemned you, I only consoled you
When candlelight made me a King

For the wide-eyed and laughing
Passed like a season
Erasing a passion to sin
For no one knew better than the tealeaves and the tarots
That the wide-eyed and laughing
Were just one step ahead of the wind

And the hearts that you played on the porch swing for me
Was a song that I'd heard in the past
For I had an audience somewhere inside you
That applauded whenever you laughed

Gone is a word that I now rarely use
Though sometime in the course of a day
I go racing back like a man possessed
By the wide-eyed and laughing daughters of some different age

The brilliant, yet sadly hidden tune... | Reviewer: Komodo | 6/29/2005

I cannot say enough about this song.
First and only place I've ever found it was on the tape-cassette version of the album called "Blue Moves". The first CD version I found SHAMLESSLY omits it to 'preserve space' or some severely lame b.s. like that (IT'S CALLED MAKE A 2-DISK SET, YOU MORONS AT THE RECORD COMPANY...). I never have seen the actual vinyl version of the album, so it may be there as well. Now I believe you can find remastered cd versions that include it. (just looked it up on amazon)

All I know is that it kills me every single time I hear it.

Find it, listen to it, dig it.
