Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Produced by phil ramone
Performed with heather headley and sherie scott
Available on the album elton john and tim rices aida

Its so strange he doesnt show me more affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful, never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine Im not always on his mind
Hes not thinking what Im thinking, always half a beat behind
Always half a beat behind

Im in every kind of trouble, cant you tell, just look at me
Half ecstatic, half dejected, all in all Im all at sea
Easy turns I thought I wanted, fill me now with chilling dread
You can never know the chaos, of a life turned on its head
Of a life turned on its head

Take a little time to panic, shake off your complacent state
I know all I ever wished to, of a life destroyed by fate
Its so strange you never notice anything but where you are
Step outside your gleaming prison, or is that a step too far
Or is that a step too far
