Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album The One

D/C    C    D/C   C  D/C   C  D/C  C

D/C                                      C
I saw you dancing out the ocean
D/C                                       G/B
Running fast along the sand
Gm/Bb                                   Eb
A spirit born of earth and water
                                   F
Fire flying from your hands

F7

Bb                                      Eb/Bb        F/A
In the instant that you love someone
                                          Bb
In the second that the hammer hits
Ab6              G                        F/A
Reality runs up your spine
G7/B      Cm                    F
And the pieces finally fit

Bb                                       D7/F#
And all I ever needed was the one
Gm                                             Bb/F
Like freedom feels where wild horses run
Gb                                  Bb/F 
When stars collide like you and I
Ab/Bb                                    Eb   Bb/D
No shadows block the sun
Cm7   
You're all I've ever needed
Cm7/F
Baby you're the one

Bb

There are caravans we follow
Drunken nights in dark hotels
When chances breathe between the silence
Where sex and love no longer gel


For each man in his time is Cain
Until he walks along the beach
And sees his future in the water
A long lost heart within his reach
