Every Time I Try to Understand – Lyrics

Sometimes it really isn’t clear
Who’s the hero and the victim
You think you’ve got it all figured out
That’s the time you better get out

Cause when you think know the answer
Identified the better dancer
You could be wrong

And every time I try to understand
All the sweet things that she’s done for me
I try to place them in an envelope
And send them somewhere ‘cross the sea
To me

I thought I found my tiny dancer
Bernie Taupin’s Mona Lisa
I want to throw my arms around her
Like she’s always done for me

But I am the man who’s kind and loyal
Always there in times of need
Or am I weak?

And every time I try to understand
All the sweet things that she’s done for me
I try to place them in an envelope
And send them somewhere ‘cross the sea
To me
