When I was a child, I was abused physically and sexually!!! Elton was my healer when the abuse was put to a stop!!! Goodbye yellow brick road, was the song, during my healing that helped me keep my sanity!!! I wish their was s way I could thank him for his and Bernie taupins beautiful music. The song someone saved my life tonight is a reality for me!!! Thank you Elton for saving my life the night I wanted to end it!!! That song came on the radio and had a change of heart. Eternaly grateful for u

My husband loves the lyrics. "Just one more beer and I don't hear you anymore. Elton John is actually thanking someone for pulling his head out of a gas oven. Elton was suffering depression and was talk into continue his life and music. The girl was reported to not even care. This was from a Rolling Stones interview. He is thanking his friend from this dark part of his life.

I heard this is about him coming out. He was alter bound, but someone saved his life

I remember after this song came out everyone would try to sound so cool when they were breaking up with someone and say "butterflies are free to fly so fly away" great song

I love the drama in this. The emotion in his voice. Especially "damn it, listen to me good" part. Part of the legend.

He did his best music in his younger years. He's still good, just not as good.

Ah the memories of listening to this over and over again on 8-track in my parent's Volvo station wagon. Since we couldn't easily play the 8-track in the house, we bought the LP which included the lyrics and I was off to the races. Little league, growing up in Willow Glen and Elton John! Yeah baby.

saw him live in April 2009 in Pensacola Florida. An amazing talent and what a concert.

Amazing....
And butterflies are free to fly.

He makes these all his own.
How beautiful!

Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy is one of the best albums of all time.

I've read a bio on Elton, and apparently, he really did try to commit suicide by sticking his head into a gas oven. (The door was too uncomfortabl e though, so he went and got a pillow!) He was saved by his friend, Long John Baldry, and that's where Bernie Taupin got the inspiration for this song. Very powerful indeed.

Don't be afraid to set yourself free from your "Sugar Bear". If you feel hooks or that you are being roped and tied, STOP and reevaluate. Awesome song.

The poetry in this is so powerful.
