"Ego" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I feel light up on my feet
From the way you look at me
You open up the universe
Yeah I bet you get this all the time

I crumble when you touch my wings
But that's okay 'cause I'm nothing
I'm tougher than you think
Yeah I bet you get this all the time

The no-hopers
The overwhelmers
The sweet talkers
I bet you get this all the time
I bet they just throw themselves at you
The daydreamers
The dope smokers
The loose talkers
Yeah I bet you get this all the time

Evil lovers
Go-getters
Fare workers
Yeah I bet you get this all the time
I bet they just throw themselves at you

Yeah I bet you get this all the time

I can't make this any clearer
I can't make this any simpler
Still passin' through my fingers
I bet you get this all the time

The day dreamers
The evil lover
The sweet talkers
Yeah I bet you get this all the time

I bet they just throw themselves at you

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG!!!! It's the happiest song Yorke has ever done. Yea, it's "ego lovers" and I think the female voice in the background is saying... "You know" and "Love You". They play this all the time at the bar/club in my town. I was surprised that Thom, Burial & Four Tet did such a fun song instead of some dark twisted tune.

    General CommentI sort of imagine it as him smooth-talking a girl at a club while Burial and Four Tet DJ.


    He's come a long way from "Creep"!
