Elton John: Funeral For A Friend Meaning

Funeral For A Friend Lyrics


The roses in the window box
Have tilted to one side
Everything about this house
Was born to grow and die

Oh it doesn't seem a year ago
To this very day
You said I'm sorry honey
If I don't change the pace
I can't face another...

    The key to the song is “love lies bleeding “. It’s more than just a phrase; it is the name of a flower.
    The flower is deep red in color and is unique in that the color does not fade over time after it is picked (death or separation). The flower is actually a part of the original LP jacket artwork.
    The initial music at the beginning of the song is about death or separation. “Funeral for a Friend”... The music advances slowly from the bells of death tolling, but if you listen closely as the song advances, those notes are still there. They change somewhat, but they are still there. The music mimics our feelings from first losing someone to slowly healing over time. But even later on “love lies bleeding” - the color/love is still present. It is always present...

    It is about a guy that met a girl in a club called the blue angel they talk about family and music and fell deeply in love something that night happened a girl came in the club and pulled a gun on her right behind his back she was scared so she stayed later until it was safe thenshe left she waited for him inside the door but he didn't come out she was to meet him the next day there.but for her to be safe she couldnt go back there he went to the club and she wasn't there she called they said he wasn't there.they became star crossed lovers.a sleeping love that went on and on.They never got the chance to tell each other how they loved one another.so is the meaning of the poorly communicated feelings of the two described as a death -
    .unable to know the truth .The love they have has always been waiting to come alive by some chance until then there love continues anyway because true love never really dies.
