  1. Why's it never light on my lawn
    Why does it rain 
    And never say good-day to the new-born
    On the big screen they showed us the sun
    But not as bright in life as the real one
    It's never quite the same as the real one

    And tell me grey seal
    How does it feel
    To be so wise
    To see through eyes
    That only see what's real
    Tell me grey seal

    I never learned why meteors were formed
    I only farmed in schools 
    That were so warn and torn
    If anyone can cry then so can I
    I read books and draw life from the eye
    All my life is drawings from the eye

    And tell me grey seal
    How does it feel
    To be so wise
    To see through eyes
    That only see what's real
    Tell me grey seal

    Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
    The roots were formed by twisted roots
    Your roots were twisted then
    I was re-born before all life could die
    The Phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
    If the Phoenix bird can fly then so can I

    And tell me grey seal
    How does it feel
    To be so wise
    To see through eyes
    That only see what's real
    Tell me grey seal

  2. I love Elton but its getting hard to make out the words these days – its okay for those of us who've heard the originals we don't need subtitles we know how these songs should sound but to any new listeners this is gonna sounds mumbled and incoherent and nothing special at all. Check out the live 1974 on YouTube to hear how Grey Seal should sound. I hope no one takes offence I'm just being honest. Elton is still producing great work in the studio but his live performances have taken a nose dive.
