about

"that was called love for the workers in song"

lyrics

Well 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
That was called love for the workers in song
Probably still is for those of them left
 
But you got away didn't you baby
You just turned your back on the crowd
You got away 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
 
Well I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous your heart was a legend
You told me again you prefer handsome men
 But for me you would make an exception
 
Then clenching your fists for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself and said “well never mind,
We are ugly but we have the music”
 
But you got away didn't you baby
You just turned your back on the crowd
You got away 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 don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best
I cant keep track of each fallen robin
But I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
That's all
I don't even think of you that often
