    Composition and recording[edit]

    In the Eagle Vision documentary, , John said the two songs were not written as one piece, but fit together since "Funeral for a Friend" ends in the key of A, and "Love Lies Bleeding" opens in A, and the two were played as one elongated piece when recorded. (However, the songs are published and copyrighted individually and remain separate entities with separate sheet music.) With lyrics like "And love lies bleeding in my hand/Oh, it kills me to think of you with another man", lyricist Bernie Taupin uses death symbolism as an angry take on a breakup song.[2]

    The grandiose introduction to "Funeral for a Friend" was performed on an ARP synthesizer (erroneously credited as A.R.P.) by the album's engineer, David Hentschel, who, John recalled, overdubbed track after track of music and synthetic atmospheric effects until the mini-opus was complete. In an interview for John's official website, Hentschel recalled that he used melodies from "The Ballad of Danny Bailey (1909-1934)", "I’ve Seen That Movie, Too", "Candle in the Wind" and others in creating the track.[3]

    Release and reception[edit]

    The song was well received by critics. AllMusic's Donald Guarisco later called "Funeral for a Friend" "a stunning instrumental" with "a powerful fusion of classical and rock elements where a gentle, lyrical motif is developed and energized until it builds into a powerhouse full of emotion and bombast."[2]

    "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" was too long for a single release, but got significant airplay on FM stations that were predisposed toward rock epics.[2] The whole piece is just over 11 minutes long. A fan favourite, it became a staple part of many Elton John tour set lists.

    magazine listed this song as number two in the list of Elton John's best songs as picked by critics, second only to "Bennie and the Jets".[4] readers picked this song as number three in a list of "deep cuts" by Elton John, songs that only a true fan would know, even though it has received significant exposure over the years.[5] The song had a strong influence on the Guns N' Roses albums and, in particular, the song "November Rain".[6] Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows lists the song among the ten songs that helped shape how he relates to music.[7]

    Covers[edit]

    The song was covered live by the American progressive metal band Dream Theater, and appears on the 1995 EP .[8]

    American progressive metal band Redemption also covered the song as a bonus track on their 2011 album .

    "Love Lies Bleeding" was covered by Très Bien! on .

    "Weird Al" Yankovic covered "Funeral for a Friend" live during his 2018 , with Yankovic playing John's piano parts on accordion.

    The song was interpolated in the song "Be Calm" by fun. on their album .

    Funeral for a Friend / Love Lies Bleeding Lyrics

    {Funeral for a Friend}

    [Instrumental]

    {Love Lies Bleeding}

    [Verse 1]

    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"

    [Chorus]

    And love lies bleedin'

    in my hands

    Oh, it kills me to think of you with another man

    I was playin' rock and roll, and you were just a fan

    But my guitar couldn't hold you

    , so I split the band

    Love lies bleedin' in my hands

    Cypress Hill 'Insane In The Brain' Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified

    [Verse 2]

    I wonder if those changes have left a scar on you

    Like all the burnin' 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

    [Chorus]

    And love lies bleedin' in my hands

    Oh, it kills me to think of you with another man

    I was playin' rock and roll, and you were just a fan

    But my guitar couldn't hold you, so I split the band

    Love lies bleedin' in my hands

    [Chorus]

    And love lies bleedin' in my hands

    Oh, it kills me to think of you with another man

    I was playin' rock and roll, and you were just a fan

    But my guitar couldn't hold you, so I split the band

    Love lies bleedin' in my hands

    [Outro] Oh! Oh! Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Love lies bleedin' in my hands

    Ooh-hoo! Ooh-hoo! Ooh-hoo!

    Ooh-hoo! Ooh-hoo! Ooh-hoo!

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
