And The Clock Goes Round lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Never released

I came down here just to waste some time
To get a little rest and to ease my mind
I didnt calculate it when I walked in the door
I only thought Id stay for a minute or more

First I saw the lights on the ceiling dim
The stale perfume yeah, and ___________
My first impression was to get outside
But then I saw you crying, crying by the fireside

The pendulum swings
Goig to and fro
And the clock goes round
Says its time to go
And the clock goes round
And the hours fly past
Slow down pendulum youre moving much too fast

Now its gone kind of quiet but I seem to see
That the only people here in the room are you and me
But I dont mind girl, girl thats all right
As long as youre gonna be with me, gonna be with me all night
