Nikita

Hey, Nikita, is it cold
In your little corner of the world?
You could roll around the globe
And never find a warmer soul to know.
 
Oh, I saw you by the Wall
Ten of your tin soldiers in a row,
With eyes that looked like ice on fire
The human heart a captive in the snow.
 
Oh, Nikita, you will never know anything about my home,
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you,
Nikita, I need you so!
Oh, Nikita is the other side of any given line in time
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row,
Oh, no, Nikita, you'll never know...
 
Do you ever dream of me?
Do you ever see the letters that I write?
When you look up through the wire
Nikita, do you count the stars at night?
 
And if there comes a time
Guns and gates no longer hold you in,
And if you're free to make a choice
Just look towards the West and find a friend.
 
Oh, Nikita, you will never know anything about my home,
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you,
Oh, no! Nikita, you'll never know!
 
Oh, Nikita, you will never know, never know anything about my home,
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you,
Nikita, I need you so!
 
Oh, Nikita is the other side of any given line in time
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row
Oh, no, Nikita, you'll never know...
 
Nikita...
Counting ten tin soldiers in their row...(Х2)

"Oh, Nikita, is the other side of any given line in time?" (the exact punctuation is under discussion right now BTW)

I always understood "Oh Nikita, it's the other side - I'll learn to give a light in time". Wink smile

Kai, hello. The line in question is absolutely correct. Just read his lips Regular smile But one article and one word are not. Besides, the lyrics need a proper editing to match the video. I'll do that right now.

From lip reading, that doesn't sound like what he's saying. Besides, that goes against consistency in the rest of the song and logic (choruses tend to be repetitions of the same verses).

No, Mario, not at all. The chorus may vary sometimes and Lips don't lie Regular smile

The meaning behind it is very clear.

Nikita, is the other side of any given line in time? = Is there a possibility to change our lot (the given line in time - your lifeline imprinted on your palm)

Eh... I meant "Counting tangent soldiers in a row". I have no objection to the other correction 8the one Magicmulder asked for). Should have probably mentioned that first, sorry.

That's Ok, Mario. Those soldiers don't matter much. Thank God they are history. Regular smile

I was just referring to my mondegreen (mishearing of
the actual lyrics). I have no idea what “tangent soldiers”
could possibly be.

I think, Kai, "Tangent Soldiers" was the name of a bug in my head. He definitely sings "Ten tin soldiers" but "in THE row". Regular smile

So, is this a love song from Elton John to Nikita Khrushchev?

Well, I do remember how some VJ's back in the day whispered "But isn't that a man's name?" and I was like "You mean Elton John could be gay? No sh*t, Sherlock!". Teeth smile
