Make Me As You Are

Musik von Elton John/Text von Bernie Taupin

geschrieben für das Broadway Musical "Lestat"/ bislang unveröffentlicht


I cannot hide what I've become
It's clear a mother knows her son
And even though your sight grows dim
You see the pallor of my skin

The blood red eyes sunk in my face
You feel the chill in my embrace
The Gothic legend of your youth
Stands here tonight as God's own truth

And from that truth I feel no fear
Two kinds of death are present here
Mine's the age-old act of dying
But yours is like the Phoenix rising

Your mother's frail and feeble husk
Will soon be nothing more than dust
So let's not dwell on wasted years
My time is short, my choice is clear

Make Me As You Are
Tear the hands off clocks
That tick away my final hours
I want to rage against the light
And leave the sun behind
I want to feel the path of everlasting youth inside

Take me, give me new life
And we'll live beneath the stars
Together and forever
I beg you, Make Me As You Are

This cursed gift with which I live
I know not if it's mine to give
But out of love I can't refuse
Too much to gain; nothing to lose

The risk is mine, and if we fail
I'll shake the demons by their tails
And spit into the devil's face
And say hell's now was damn, this place

I'm still a fledgling in this frame
I've only killed when hunger reigned
Death was final in my wake
But yes this is the chance we'll take

Oh blessed thoughts of sweet release
From nagging nurse, and hovering priest
To rid myself of stoop and cane
To breathe without this burning pain

Make Me As You Are
Tear the wings off angels that would lift me from your heart
I want to dance beneath the moon
And slip into the dark

I want to feel the night awaken when I leave my mark
Take me, give me new life
And we'll live beneath the stars
Together and forever, I beg you

Make Me, Make Me, Make Me As You Are
Tear the hands off clocks that tick away my final hours
I want to rage against the light
And leave the sun behind
I want to feel the path of everlasting youth inside

Take me, give me new life
And we'll live beneath the stars
Together and forever
I beg you, Make Me As You Are
I beg you, Make Me As You Are
