New Featured Unknown/Underrated Song--"Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding"

Ahh, one of the great unreleased songs of the Rock Era.  Elton used to open all of his concerts with this song.  Just because it wasn't released as a single or didn't make some chart doesn't mean it wasn't a classic.  
"Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding"

Lyrics by Bernie Taupin, Music by Elton John

The roses in the window box
Have tilted to one side
Everything about this house
Was born to grow and die

Oh it doesn't seem a year ago
To this very day
You said I'm sorry honey
If I don't change the pace
I can't face another day

And love lies bleeding in my hand
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
But my guitar couldn't hold you
So I split the band
Love lies bleeding in my hands

I wonder if those changes
Have left a scar on you
Like all the burning hoops of fire
That you and I passed through

You're a bluebird on a telegraph line
I hope you're happy now
Well if the wind of change comes down your way girl
You'll make it back somehow
