Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill [Official Lyric Video]
Official Website: http://edsheeran.com

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
….And I’m on my way, and I still remember those country lanes
When we did not know the answers, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real

Elton John – Tiny Dancer
Elton John in 1971.

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
….Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

One week in we let the story begin
We’re going out on our first date
You and me are thrifty
So go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And how your family’s doing ok
leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play
and I’m singing like
….Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you
