    I believe the main objective of this song is to send a message to the fans by repeating "all for you" many times throughout the music. This song is sang by Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John, piano by Elton and guitar by Slash, what do all these three music legends have in common? Long history of substance abuse and often closeness to death, and in my perspective the content of the lyrics are a reflexion of the lives of these three men, saying "I've been higher than the blue sky" (reference to drug abuse); "Don't know why I'm still alive" and "Many times I lost control" (reference to their closeness to death). And at the end of each reflexion comes "I don't wanna die an ordinary man" which means that after everything these three legends have been through, all they want is to be remembered when the time comes, they want to be special in people's lives, they want to leave their mark in the world, which is something that we can all agree these three music geniuses have already done....
