"Something About The Way You Look Tonight" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
There was a time
I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me
I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

I need to tell you
How you light up every second of the day
But in the moonlight
You just shine like a beacon on the bay

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight

With your smile
You pull the deepest secrets from my heart
In all honesty
I'm speechless and I don't know where to start

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Oh, it takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight
(The way you look) the way you look tonight
The way you look tonight

    General CommentThis song, like all of Elton Johns songs has meaning.This is mine and my boyfriends song. I'd dedicate this to him because everything in this song is true and much more. It has a great emotional impact on me because of its deep meaning, it's amazing, juts like the person it's dedicated to is.

    General CommentIt's so beautiful. If abybody says anything bad about this song than he is a true jerk.
    After all, do we need to say anything more? It's all said up there in the lyrics ^

    General CommentHi Rosetinted, If you take in the first verse of the song it's self explanatory (or this is my intertretation),
    There was a time
    I was everything and nothing all in one,

    This guy/gal is saying at one time he was/had everything (maybe material things), but to himself he felt he was nothing (feelings/relationship/love)

    When you found me
    I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

    When they met because of whatever he was missing was making him or his days dull (cloud across the sun/ cutting the light out)

    but he/she makes his days brighter.

    I get into this song as there is this special person, when we first met everybody looked up to (and tagged or used) me. I thought I had everything i ever wanted, i thought i could not be happier but when they came along POW! did my days seems so much brighter!! and all along i thought i was happy! lol

    General CommentI love this song, beautiful lyrics that simply sum up being in a relationship with someone simply because they make you happy!

    My InterpretationI love ELton John, to me, the song
    is when he starts to question his sexuality. No disrespect to all of the other Elton John fans but, he says basically that women are beautiful, but at night he starts to question the judgement of me, this song is an amazing example of one of
    many thoughts of Elton John....
