When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima donna lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair

  • It's the delivery of this song that just gets you in the gut every time. [2] "It's four o'clock in the morning, damn it; LISTEN TO ME GOOD."
  • Fantastic song.
  • And butterfly's are free to fly, fly away high away bye bye!
  • One of the best songs ever written.
  • This song deals with a time in Elton's life when he was going to get married to a woman named Linda Woodrow. In the 1991 Two Rooms tribute project, Elton explained: "I was going to get married once when I was younger, and I went out and got drunk with Long John Baldry and Bernie and John said I shouldn't get married. I knew he was right but I didn't know how to get out of it so, I just got drunk and went home and said I'm not getting married." http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2453
  • Its the delivery of this song that just gets you in the gut every time. Pure class
  • "Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive"
  • Yeah Dark Tower got a bit sketchy (hehe) towards the end for sure but what a journey it was! I think the crimson king was more of a built up idea than a typical platter served epic foe, I kinda like that it focuses more on the characters than build towards a final confrontation that doesn't resonate with the weird upside down tale you've been on. CK got what he deserved, all he'd been doing was screaming himself hoarse for years lol, i was more pissed at Walter o Dim's end, now THAT was a rogue. It has an interesting conclusion for sure, it is roland's tale after all through and through ;) ALL HAIL PIANO SLINGER ELTON ANYHOO
