Background

Lady Gaga and Elton John are close friends since many years and they given many performances together including "Poker Face / Speechless / Your Song" performance on Grammys 2010. They also had unreleased collaborations such as "Hello Hello" intended for Gnomeo & Juliet soundtrack, piano ballad intended for ARTPOP and "Room in my Heart" intended for Joanne. "Sine From Above" marks first Gaga and Elton released collaboration.

After release of Chromatica tracklisting many of Gaga collaborators reposted it with description saying what track they contributed in. Two writers of song, Johannes Klahr and Liohn, acknowledged that they co-written "Sine From Above".[1][2]

It was later confirmed that the track was originally written for Elton John with Ryan Tedder and Sebastian Ingrosso in 2014, with Axwell revealing in a 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly that the song started out with just Elton singing on it, "a more chilled out, piano, acoustic thing". Burns stated that Elton was on tour in Australia during the time, with the deadline to finish fast approaching. It was eventually recorded via Skype, with Elton in a studio in Australia and Gaga in Hollywood.

Lyrics

[Lady Gaga]:
When I was young, I prayed for lightning
My mother said it would come and find me
I found myself without a prayer
I lost my love and no one cared
When I was young, I prayed for lightning

Yeah, I looked
With my face up to the sky, but I saw nothing there
No, no, nothing there
Yeah, I stared
While my eyes filled up with tears, but there was nothing there
No, no, nothing

I heard one sine from above
I heard one sine from above
Then the signal split in two
The sound created stars like me and you
Before there was love, there was silence
I heard one sine
And it healed my heart, heard a sine

Healed my heart, heard a sine
Healed my heart, heard a sine

[Elton John]:
When I was young, I felt immortal
And not a day went by without a struggle

[Lady Gaga & Elton John]:
I lived my days just for the nights
I lost myself under the lights
When I was young, I felt immortal

Yeah, I looked
With my face up to the sky, but I saw nothing there
No, no, nothing there
Yeah, I stared
While my eyes filled up with tears, but there was nothing there
No, no, nothing

I heard one sine from above
I heard one sine from above
Then the signal split in two
The sound created stars like me and you
Before there was love, there was silence
I heard one sine
And it healed my heart, heard a sine

Healed my heart, heard a sine
Healed my heart, heard a sine

[Lady Gaga]:
Then the signal split in two
The sound created stars like me and you
Before there was love, there was silence

[Elton John]:
I heard one sine

[Lady Gaga & Elton John]: (Elton John):
And it healed my heart, heard a sine (heard a sine)

[Lady Gaga]:
Healed my heart
Healed my-
Heart, heard a-
Sine
Healed my-
Heart, heard a sine
