Elaborate Lives
Elaborate Lives is the eleventh song in Elton John's and Tim Rice's musical Aida.

When alone, Radames and Aida, no longer able to hold it back, admit their love for one another. While they recognize that their situation is incredibly complicated and troubled, at that very moment, they merely wish to enjoy the moment they share, and make love with one another, for as long as it lasts, and face the outcomes some other time, together.

LyricsEdit

Radames: We all lead such elaborate lives
Wild ambitions in our sights
How an affair of the heart survives
Days apart and hurried nights

Seems quite unbelievable to me
I don't want to live like that
Seems quite unbelievable to me
I don't want to love like that
I just want our time to be
Slower and gentler, wiser, free

We all live in extravagant times
Playing games we can't all win
Unintended emotional crimes
Take some out, take others in

I'm so tired of all were going through
I don't want to live like that
I'm so tired of all were going through
I don't want to love like that
I just want to be with you
Now and forever, peaceful, true

This may not be the moment
To tell you face to face
But I could wait forever
For the perfect time and place

Radames & Aida: We all lead such elaborate lives
We don't know whose words are true
Strangers, lovers, husbands, wives
Hard to know who's loving who

Aida: Too many choices tear us apart
I don't want to live like that

Radames: Too many choices tear us apart
I don't want to love like that
I just want to touch your heart
May this confession...

Radames and Aida: Be the start
