Eight Hundred Dollar Shoes - Elton John (艾爾頓·約翰)/Leon Russell

Written by:Elton John

You had your grand illusion and wrestled with your fate

 

The winter of your discontent came twenty years too late

 

If it was love and I was there I've forgotten where it lives

 

We both stepped off a frozen rock onto a burning bridge

 

You came like an invasion all bells and whistles blowing

 

Reaping the rewards of the fable you'd been sowing

 

I saw you cross the landing and descending marble stairs

 

Like Caesar crossed the Rubicon you seemed to walk on air

 

Yea I've seen your movie

 

And I read it in your book

 

The truth just flew off ever page

Your songs have all the hooks

 

You're seven wonders rolled in one

 

You shifted gear to cruise

 

Oh you came to town in headlines

 

And eight hundred dollar shoes

 

Oh the bellboys are crying and moneys changing hands

 

Your cloak and dagger legacy's gone home to no man's land

 

The marquee lights are flickering your poster's fading fast

 

Your being here just melts away like ice cubes in a glass

 

Yea I've seen your movie

 

And I read it in your book

 

The truth just flew off ever page

 

Your songs have all the hooks

 

You're seven wonders rolled in one

 

You shifted gear to cruise

 

Oh you came to town in headlines

 

And eight hundred dollar shoes

 

Oh you came to town in headlines

 

And eight hundred dollar shoes
