someone saved my life tonight (again)

When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights,
The curtains drawn, in the little room downstairs
Prima donna, lord you really should have been there
I was sitting like a princess perched in my electric chair
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore. . .
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear

You nearly had me roped and tied

Altar-bound, hypnotized. . .
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
"You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away"
Bye bye. . .

I never realised the passing hours of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams

I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it, listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight,
Saved in time,
Thank God my music's still alive
And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your h.p. demands forever
They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone

Popcorn, S&G and Elton John.
It's shapin' up nicely already, this Friday!

Angels are wonderful creatures.

Happy adventuring!

I, still, ♥ the views said...

it seems my guardian angel deserted me today for someone in greater need than I and I had to rely on myself. . .

. . .I'm still here and still breathing!

Rimshot said...

Breathing is good. Breathing is an excellent start.

Just out of curiosity, is your new domicile further east or west then your ex-domicile?

Mel said...

Still breathing IS required, yaknow.....


I, still, ♥ the views said...

shot a degree further East. . . but no further South or North. . .

mel just as well that one of the things that's required is fairly basic, eh

thanks for the hug
