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...

*hugs*
Still breathing IS required, yaknow.....

*humming*

I, still, ♥ the views said...
