ELTON JOHN


Nikita Lyrics

Hey Nikita is it cold
In your little corner of the world
You could roll around the globe
And never find a warmer soul to know

Oh I saw you by the wall
Ten of your tin soldiers in a row
With eyes that looked like ice on fire
The human heart a captive in the snow

Oh Nikita You will never know anything about my home
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you
Nikita I need you so
Oh Nikita is the other side of any given line in time
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row
Oh no, Nikita you'll never know

Do you ever dream of me
Do you ever see the letters that I write
When you look up through the wire
Nikita do you count the stars at night

And if there comes a time
Guns and gates no longer hold you in
And if you're free to make a choice
Just look towards the west and find a friend

When Elton & Bernie Taupin wrote songs together (including this one), Bernie wrote the lyrics and Elton wrote the music.

I was in boarding school when one night this picked up a guitar and no one knew he could play and he sang Nakita like Elton himself could have been in the room - this song still takes me back to that

Just to put the detail right, Nikita is a male name. Never female. Well, not where it originated centuries ago and is in common use till now.

I believe it was written in 1985 about a ficticious girl behind the Berlin Wall that really came down in 1989. 'AND IF THERE COMES A TIME GUNS AND GATES NO LONGER HOLD YOU IN', still gives me chills.

I was named after this song by my daddy in '86 and if anybody seen the video its about some Russia girl with blue eyes......not Angeline or Princess Diana

It's a lovely song but hearing it constantly when you are little kinda made it a bit harder to listen to. Because yes my name is Nikita

I've loved this song since I was little. Just wondering if anyone knows who he wrote this about. I've heard Princess Diana.. but don't know how true it is.
