Original Sin Lyrics

Play "Original Sin"
on Amazon Music

Oh, it's carnival night
And they're stringing the lights around you
Hanging paper angels
Painting little devils on the roof

Oh the furnace wind
Is a flickering of wings about your face
In a cloud of incense
Yea, it smells like Heaven in...

    It is about a girl (a teenager)who meets a guy and they never tell one another how much they love each other.She loves him and wants him.He is afraid of her spirit but knows it.he has a hard time facing her.He always leaves .that is her only sadness,really.
    so she prays for him .for peace and love and friendship between them every day ,and forgives him,and that he will forgive her .

    I think it is about a man who is in love with a priest. Further, I think there is an implication that the love is requited Although the lyrics were written by Bernie, a straight man, there is nothing that says a writer can or would not write about a situation from the perspective of one who is caught up in that situation. Given the close linkage between Elton and Bernie over the years, it would come as little surprise that Bernie would readily compose a lyric that expresses something Elton could relate to. I think it is one of the most lovely compositions the two teamed up on over the years.

    Strangely I think this is a love song to Jesus. A gay man's love song ....listen to the first 2 verses!
