Joseph, Better You than Me
Brandon Flowers:
Well your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
Are you bad at dealing with the fame, Joseph?
There's a pale moonshine above you
Do you see both sides?
Do they shove you around?

Elton John:
Is the touchdown forcing you to hide, Joseph?
Are the Romans eating you alive, Joseph?

Brandon Flowers:
When the holy night is upon you
Will you do what's right?
The position is yours

Elton John:
From the Temple walls
To the New York night
Our decisions rest on a child
When she took her stand, did she hold your hand?
Will your faith stand still or run away?
Run away...

When they've driven you so far
Did you think you're gonna drop?

Elton John and Brandon Flowers:
Do you wish you were back there at the carpenter's shop?

Neil Tennant:
With the plane and the lathe
The work never drove you mad
You're a maker, a creator
Not just somebody's dad

All:
From the Temple walls
To the New York night
Our decisions rest on the man
When I take the stand, will he hold my hand?
Will my faith stand still or run away?
(Run away...)

Elton John:
And the desert, it's a hell of a place to find heaven
Forty years lost in the wilderness looking for God
And you climb to the top of the mountain
Looking down on the city
Where you were born

All:
All the years since you left
Gave you time to sit back and reflect

Better you than me
Better you than me
Better you than me, yeah

When the holy night is upon you (better you, better you)
Do you see both sides?
Do they shove you around?

(Better you than me) Joseph
Better than you than me
(Better you than me) Joseph, Joseph, Joseph
(Better you than me) Joseph
Than me
Better you than me
Better you (better you than me)
Better you, better you than me

Well your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
