Healing Hands

There's a light, where the darkness ends

In Their Own Words

Bernie Taupin: “But I think “Healing Hands” was chosen as the first single because it’s the most obvious one; it’s the most anthemic song on the album probably.”
  • Influenced in part by The Impressions
  • Lyrically inspired by The Four Top’s “Reach Out, I’ll Be There”
  • Bernie was involved creatively with the music video
  • Elton originally demoed the song with an entirely different structure at Woodside
