What did Elton John mean when he wrote it? Is there meaning behind it? I've always wondered.

It means he was high.

I don't know, but it makes me cry everytime.

GOD I love Elton John.
"The stage is where I live and come alive and act out all the things that go on in my life. It's not just what I do for a living, it's my shrink and my love affair. No one in my life has ever or ever will kiss me on the mouth like this lover called my relationship with my performance."

To Elton John, size doesn't matter.
BSoBW2: I punched Sondheim in the face after I saw Wicked and said, "Why couldn't you write like that!?"

Jon, I love the Danza rendition. It's an old karaoke favourite of mine.

I've wondered the same thing Eponine. If I ever find out you'll be the first to know. re: Signficance of the song 'Tiny Dancer'
