Track Name: Chelsea Hotel #2 [abridged cover]
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were talking so brave, and so sweet
giving me head on the unmade bed
while the limousines wait in the street
those were the reasons and that was New York
we were running for the money and the flesh
and that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left

ah, but you got a way, didn't you babe
you just turned your back on the crowd
you got a way, I never once heard you say, "I need you."
I don't need you. I need you. I don't need you.
And all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend
you told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception
and clenching your fists, for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
you fixed yourself, said, "Well, never mind
we are ugly, but we have the music."
Track Name: Gods & Monsters [abridged cover]
in the land of gods and monsters
i was an angel
living in the garden of evil
screwed up, scared, doing anything that i needed
shining like a fiery beacon

you got that medicine that i need
fame, liquor, love- give it to me slowly
put your hands on my waist do it softly
me and god, we don't get a long- so now I sing

"No one's going to take my soul away!"
Living like Jim Morrison, headed towards a fucked up holiday
hotel sprees, sprees and i'm singing
"fuck yeah- give it to me, this is heaven, what I really want-
is innocence lost, innocence lost."
Track Name: You Ain't Going Nowhere [cover]
clouds so swift, rain won't lift
gate won't close, the railings froze
get your mind off wintertime
you ain't going nowhere

wooeee, ride me high
tomorrow's the day
my man's going to come
oh, are we going to fly
down in the easy chair

I don't care how many letters they sent
morning came and morning went
pick up your money and pack your tent
cause you ain't going nowhere

wooee, ride me high
tomorrow's the day
my man's going to come
oh, are we going to fly
down in the easy chair

buy me a flute and a gun that shoots
tailgates and substitutes
strap yourself to the tree with roots
cause you ain't going nowhere

wooee, ride me high
tomorrow's the day
my man's going to come
oh, are we going to fly
down in the easy chair

Genghis Kahn, he could not keep
all his kings supplied with sleep
we'll climb that hill, no matter how steep
when we get up to it.

wooee, ride me high
tomorrow's the day
my man's going to come
oh, are we going to fly
down in the easy chair
Track Name: Summer Wine [cover]
strawberries, cherries, and an angel's kiss in spring
my summer wine is really made from all these things

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
a song that I had only sang to just a few
she saw my silver spurs and said,
"let's pass some time, and I will give to you
summer wine" Oohhh, summer wine

strawberries, cherries, and an angel's kiss in spring
my summer wine is really made from all these things
take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
and I will give to you summer wine
Mmmmm, summer wine

my eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
she reassured me with an unfamiliar line
and then she gave to me more summer wine
Mmmmm, summer wine

strawberries, cherries, and an angels' kiss in spring
my summer wine is really made from all these things
take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
and I will give to you summer wine
Mmmmmm, summer wine

when I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
my silver spurs were gone my head felt twice its size
she took my silver spurs, a dollar, and a dime
and left me craving for more summer wine
Ooooooo, summer wine

strawberries, cherries, and an angels' kiss in spring
my summer wine is really made from all these things
take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
and I will give to you summer wine
Mmmmmm, summer wine
Track Name: Belaire [cover]
gargoyles standing
at the front of your gate
trying to tell me to wait
but I can't wait to see you
so I run like I'm mad
to heaven's door
I don't wanna be bad
I won't cheat you no more

Roses, Belaire, take me there
I've been waiting to see you
palm trees in the light
I can see late at night
Darling, I'm willing to greet you
come to me baby

Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flare
for the violentest kind of love anywhere out there
now I'm lost, sweet child of mine
you're divine- didn't anyone ever tell you
it's okay to shine?

Roses, Belaire, take me there
I've been waiting to see you
palm trees in the light
I can see late at night
Darling, I'm willing to greet you
come to me baby

Don't be afraid of me
Don't be ashamed
walk in the way of my soft resurrection
I know the roses I've counted so
I know your name
lead me to war with your brilliant direction

Roses, Belaire, take me there
I've been waiting to greet you
Track Name: Help Me Make It Through the Night [cover]
take that ribbon from your hair
shake it loose and let it fall
laying soft upon my skin
like the shadows on the wall

come and lay down by my side
through the early morning light
all I'm taking is your time
help me make it through the night

yesterday is dead and gone
and tomorrow's out of sight
it's so sad to be alone
help me make it through the night

I don't care who's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
let the devil take tomorrow
lord, tonight I need a friend

come and lay down by my side
through the early morning light
all I'm taking is your time
help me make it through the night
