Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinReleased as a uk b-side in 1980It looked a lot like the same old thingI’ve seen so many timesShe was aging fast like a banditBorn to a life of crimeMeanwhile he held his crown and watched her fallJust bouncing her around like a rubber ballThrough her washed up eyes she could seeThat the ties on her prince were goneHe turned the radio off when they playedWhat he once had called their songWell the crystal didn’t clink but they drink up moreAnd when he stayed out late she knew what he stayed out forLove’s so cold when you’re growing old and your looks are goneLove’s so cold when your hands don’t dance where they once belongedIf he’s heading down to the red light and the local barLove’s so cold when he shoots an arrow through your heartLove’s so cold when he shoots an arrow through your heartDue to natural causes she became distorted and she tried to leaveBut the winning team had an ace or two up a crooked sleeveFor he knew that her age wouldn’t help her get alongAnd that’s what made his hold on her so strong
