I remember you well, playing Chelsea Hotel,
Your hair was all curly, like Dylan's,
Your accordion keys sat on torn, faded knees,
and your instrument case it said, "Please."
And the chords were familiar, the melody known,
As I walked by, so you wouldn't be alone,
I let my voice ring out through yours,
with a harmony line that made me want more,
I kept on walking, but my head turned around,
so our eyes could acknowledge the heavenly sound,
And our smiles just beamed,
and it could last forever it seemed,
I kept on, but I thought about turning,
and my indecision still leaves me burning.
Well it's true, I can't keep track of each fallen robin,
and the thought of you won't keep me up sobbing,
but I remember you well, playing Chelsea Hotel,
and I wish I'd have stayed for the song,
And thinking about who you might be,
is dangerous, gorgeous, and wrong.
