love’s got a lot to answer for lyrics – elton john

pull my coat around me,
feel the cold wind haunt me,
streets are empty, just like me,
the murmour of an echo seems to come from every window,
is loneliness the same as being free?

i guess i must have been dreaming,
to think that i believed in you at all,
now i just can’t find it,
as the shadow of the night begins to fall,

love’s got a lot to answer for,
no i just can’t sleep with this feeling anymore,
let the cold night in, cool the heat,
of two hearts gone to war,
for no matter who wins, in the end,
love’s got a lot to answer for.

all i need is darkness,
the best of all protection,
freedom’s like the stars in the sky,
alone, cold and burning,
each one keeps it’s distance,
if only you and i were stars,

oh, i guess i must have been dreaming,
to think that i believed in you at all,
and now i just can’t find it,
as the shadow of the night begins to fall,

love’s got a lot to answer for,
no i just can’t sleep with this feeling anymore,
let the cold night in, cool the heat,
of two hearts gone to war,
for no matter who wins, in the end,
love’s got a lot to answer for.

(instrumental)

love’s got a lot to answer for,
no i just can’t sleep with this feeling anymore,
let the cold night in, cool the heat,
of two hearts gone to war,
for no matter who wins, in the end,
love’s got a lot to answer for.

no matter who wins, in the end,
love’s got a lot to answer for.
