ELTON JOHN


Eight Hundred Dollar Shoes Lyrics

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
Descending marble stairs

Like Caesar crossed the Rubicon
You seemed to walk on air

And yeah I've seen your movie
And I read it in your book
The truth just flew off every page
Your songs have all the hooks
You're seven wonders rolled in one
You've shifted gears to cruise
Oh you came to town in headlines
And eight hundred dollar shoes

Oh the bellboys are crying
And monies changing hands

Your cloak and dagger legacies
Gone home to No Man's Land

The marquee lights are flickering
Your posters fading fast

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

And yeah I've seen your movie
And I read it in your book
The truth just flew off every page
Your songs have all the hooks

You're seven wonders rolled in one
You've shifted gears to cruise
Oh you came to town in headlnes
And eight hundred dollar shoes

Oh you came to town in headlines
And eight hundred dollar shoes
