Yesterday you came to lift me up
As light as straw and brittle as a bird
Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall
Just one more whisper of a voice unheard

    Best lyrics ever!! It made me cry, as I first hear it in the movie "and the band played on"

    I used this song as the exit music for an AIDS awareness program I did at my high school circa 1997. Still just about the most moving song ever written.

    Absolutely beautiful. Made me cry when I watched the version on the Live in Barcelona video.

    He is truly legendary. Such conviction in his words.

    such a powerful song...totally overlooked in Elton's catalogue, too...i'd like to hear it with a little different/less production...i imagine it would completely kick my ass live...

    I saw him perform this live once and cried like crazy... the combination of getting to see Elton up close for the first time, the sadness and beauty of the song... I still have aching memories of that time. Beautiful though.

    Beautiful song indeed. Never really knew what it was about till I saw the music video when I was younger. So touching.

    I randomly heard this song over the intercom system at Kroger. Not exactly grocery shopping music. Beautiful song though.
