Cream Live 68 | Clapton Live | Cream 05 Royal Albert Hall | CKY Reunion Band |
In the white room   with black curtains   near the station.
Black-roof country,   no gold pavements,   tired starlings.
Silver horses   run down moonbeams   in your dark eyes.
Dawn-light smiles   on you leaving,   my contentment.

I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines;
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.

You said no strings  could secure you   at the station.
Platform ticket,   restless diesels,   goodbye windows.
I walked into   such a sad time   at the station.
As I walked out,   felt my own need   just beginning.

I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back;
Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves.

At the party   she was kindness   in the hard crowd.
Consolation   for the old wound   now forgotten.
Yellow tigers   crouched in jungles   in her dark eyes.
She's just dressing,   goodbye windows,   tired starlings.

I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd;
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves.
