Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinReleased as a uk b-side in 1984I’d like to make this song so simpleDon’t want to hide my feeling underDrawn up words in shades of many coloursHow can I make them think I am cleverBy merely saying that I miss youIt’s just a state they claim I’m going throughDon’t want you to think that I am weakeningAlthough you know I’m always dreamingSomeday you’ll be coming home to meTortured, I’ve been so tortured by you so many timesBut you always love the ones that hurt youAnd I guess those are the ties that bindTortured by youIf I had taken parting easyIt might have been a better lessonFor all concerned in wars of love and hateHow can you swear through words and musicThe heart you crave and how to move itIt’s just a beach you washed my body ontoDon’t want you to know that I an cryingAlthough your friends can see I’m dyingSlowly from the knife you left in meTortured by youTortured by youTortured by you so many times
