This Is Your Song

Elton and Bernie already wrote ‘Your Song’

And I could just sing that for you

But I don’t think words meant for someone else

Is the ‘best I can do’

So many love songs have come along

You’d think that it’s all been said

But the words have never been sung out loud

That are living inside my head

You don’t have to tell anybody

I wrote this song for you

If no-one else ever hears it

My words are no less true

I couldn’t offer you more than this

It’s all I have to give

These words are my gift for you to keep

As long as you live

I love the way you say the ‘L’ in ‘half’

When you tell me ‘I’m half Russian, half Greek’

Don’t ever change your beautiful voice

I melt every time you speak

I love your laugh when you tease me

Those moments I’ll never forget

And the times when you hurt me

Haven’t made me a stranger yet

No, you don’t have to tell anybody

I wrote this song for you

If no-one else ever hears it

My words are no less true

I couldn’t offer you more than this

It’s all I have to give

These words are my gift for you to keep

As long as you live

When we sat hand in hand in your living room

The evening before that Moscow flight

You told me at last that you love me

And that’s the moment I’ll keep with me

I’ll keep it with me

All my life


Co-ed Alison Banville has written these lyrics about the person the song is dedicated to, but was inspired by Elton John’s classic ‘Your Song’ and the amazing film Rocketman. Her writing partner is working on the music. Watch this space.
