Sacrifice - Elton John

"Sacrifice" is a ballad performed by musician Elton John. The lyrics are by Bernie Taupin and music by Elton John. The song appears on the 1989 album Sleeping with the Past. It was first released in October of 1989, then in 1990, and was the second single from the album. It achieved success, particularly in France and UK.

Sacrifice was initially released as a single in 1989, but stalled at #55 in the UK charts and at #18 in the US charts during January of 1990. By the next year English DJ, Steve Wright, began playing the song on BBC Radio 1, soon followed by many more radio DJs. The song was then re-released as a double A-side single, along with "Healing Hands", and reached #1 in the UK on or about late June or early July, 1990. Thus, it became John's first independent number-one single along with "Healing Hands" on the UK Singles Chart, remaining on the top spot for six weeks, as it became his first hits of the 1990s. With this re-release, Elton John also got his first number one in France and stayed on the chart for 26 weeks.

Scroll and Sing:
It's a human sign
When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation's strong

Into the boundary
Of each married man
Sweet deceit comes calling
And negativity lands

Cold cold heart
Hard done by you
Some things look better baby
Just passing through

And it's no sacrifice
Just a simple word
It's two hearts living
In two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice
No sacrifice
It's no sacrifice at all

Mutual misunderstanding
After the fact
Sensitivity builds a prison
In the final act

We lose direction
No stone unturned
No tears to damn you
When jealousy burns
