"You Can Make History (Young Again)" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I can feel the time closing in
I can feel the years crawling through my skin
And if I doubt myself I can count on the rain
To cover the tears of this aging game

But I can count on you to play your part
I don't miss a beat of your animal heart
And when you push from behind I know I can
Cover a mountain with the palm of my hand

And oh babe, you can make history young again
You could rewrite, you could decide
The things that should or shouldn't have been
You could look at me in the scheme of things
Oh babe, you could make history young again

I can watch the weeks sweeping by
I can recollect the hearts hanging out to dry
When the world shuts down I can touch my fears
I can hear lost youth ringing in my ears

But I lost nothing when I gained you
You just blew me away with yesterdays news
When you run your fingers down my spine
It's like throwing a switch on the hands of time

Ancient minds, ancient lives
Got a way of coming around
If I knew then what I know now
I'd make it back to you somehow

    General CommentThis is truly a beautiful song yet again by Mr John and Mr Taupin. They prove from time to time again why they have the lasting power they do. "When you run your fingers down my spine/It's like throwing a switch on the hands of time" Just beautiful

    General Commenti think it's about reflecting on past relationships, and second guessing what they could have done differently to have made things work.

    General CommentBeautiful song. It brings out the anxiety/ nostalgia of looking back on things, and wanting them to be the way they used to.
