Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Produced by jimmy jamm and terry lewis
Duet with janet jackson
Available on the album elton john and tim rices aida

How have I come to this
How did I slip and fall
How did I throw half a lifetime away
Without any thought at all

This shouldve been my time
Its over, it never began
Facing a world, for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
But I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late

I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
I learned it a little too late

People have faith in me
I think I once did too
I promise whoever has a hold on our lives
Ill see the bad times through

This should have been my time
Its over, it never began
Facing a world, for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of shift in the stars
But I know the truth and it haunts me
Its flown just a little too far

I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
Its flown just a little too far

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
But I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late
