The Killers
Well your eyes just haven?t been the same, Joseph
Are you bad at dealing with the fame, Joseph
There?s a pale moonshine, above you
Do you see both sides, do they shove you, around
Elton John
Is the touchstone forcing you to hide, Joseph
Are the rumors eating you alive, Joseph
The Killers
When the holy night is upon you
Will you do what?s right, the position is yours
Elton John
From the temple walls to the New York night
Our decisions rest on a child
When she took her stand
Did she hold your hand
Will your faith stand still or run away
Run away
guitar solo
Elton John
When they've driven you so far
That you think you're gonna drop
Do you wish you were back there at the carpenter shop
Neil Tennant
With the plane and the lathe
The work never drove you mad
You're a maker, a creator
Not just somebody's dad
From the temple walls to the New York night
Our decisions rest on a man
When I take the stand
When I take the stand
Will he hold my hand
Will my faith stand still or run away
(run away)
Elton John
And the desert
It's a hell of a place to find heaven
Forty years lost in the wilderness looking for God
And you climb to the top of the mountain
Looking down on the city
Where you were born
(On the years since you left gave you time to sit back and reflect)
Better you than me (Better you than me)
Better you than me
Yes
The Killers
Well the Holy night is upon you (Better you than me 2x)
Do you see both sides, do they shove you, around
Better you than me, Joseph (Better you than me)
Better you than me
Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph
Than me
Better you than me
Better you than me (Better you, better you, better you)
Than me
Well your eyes just haven?t been the same, Joseph
