"Love's Got A Lot To Answer For" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Pull my coat around me
Feel the cold wind haunt me
Streets are empty just like me
The murmur of an echo
Seems to come from every window
Is loneliness the same as being free

I guess I must have been dreaming
To think that I believed in you at all
Now I just can't fight it
As the shadow of the night begins to fall

Love's got a lot to answer for
Oh I just can't sleep with this feeling anymore
Let the cold night air cool the heat
Of two hearts gone to war
For no matter who wins, in the end
Love's got a lot to answer for

All I need is darkness
The best of all protection
Freedom's like the stars in the sky
Alone and cold and burning
Each one keeps it's distance
If only we were stars, you and I

    General CommentI haven’t lost my mind, you know
    Although I think—believe I’ve found
    A woman
    Most intelligent—most kind
    With whom I then proceed to fight
    On what I thought
    Was an auspicious night
    About what—neither of us know
    They only made one of these …

    So you deserve it
    Leaves one at a loss
    For an appropriate quote
    I say (into dark air)
    You’re very nice

    My sister—love
    Last time I saw her
    I begged her not to be—as liberal as me
    Old flames. Old blames

    This romantic boy
    Writes letters in his head
    And in his heart
    And once in a while
    He jumps up on the shelf and sits there
    Looking at you
    A very amusing rhyme

    Make me a pillow and I’ll sleep on it
    As long as it takes me
    Inextricably interwoven
    As the song goes—the good times
    The bad times
    My precious funky afternoon chat
    Yes—I like to make her laugh
