Lyrics for I Swear I Heard The Night Talking
By Elton John

Mail these lyrics to a friend

In the nicotine glare of a cold naked light
I drag my body from the covers and down forty flights
I run out the front door into the center of the street
I scream out your name as the steam just swells around my feet

I hear you after midnight from the inner city
As every cinderella turns to drop dead pretty
We were built out of the darkness into this west side story
We came together in the shadows but the moon just steals our glory


Well this is my battleground baby
This is my plaything
The only thing Iíve ever known
Outside of a wedding ring


And I swear I heard the night talking
Cursing me for being a little more than hopeless
Telling me weíre running lonely, loose and broken
Stronger now on passion but havenít we really spoken
And all we ever do is listen to the night talking


On the burden of insanity we canít find the cause
On a flatbed truck well the home girl she paints her claws
Thereís a coward who gets his courage undercover of the dark
And itís a strange breed of devil freeze at night to go walking in the park
live
