nikita lyrics – elton john

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

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

oh, nikita you will never know, 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

nikita, counting ten tin soldiers in a row
nikita, counting ten tin soldiers in a row
nikita, counting ten tin soldiers in a row
nikita, counting ten tin soldiers in a row… (fade)
