If I was an artist who paints with his eyes

If I was an artist who paints with his eyes
I’d study my subject and silently cry
Cry for the darkness to come down on me
For confusion to carry on turning the wheel
— Elton John, ‘This Song Has No Title’

An old, and old favourite song from Elton John. On his Yellow Brick Road album, from 1973. It was one of the first albums I bought. The lyrics were written by his then collaborator Bernie Taupin.
