Chelsea Hotel

This song is by The Shivers and appears on the album Charades (2004).

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,
That was New York.
We were running for the money and the flesh,
And that was called love
For the workers in song,
Still is for those of them left.

Oh, but you went away, didn't you babe?
You just turned your back on the crowd
You went 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 remember you well
In the Chelsea Hotel,
You were famous,
Your heart was a legend.
Told me again you preferred handsome men,
But for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fists for those like us,
Who are repressed by the figures of beauty.
You fixed yourself,
You said well nevermind,
We are ugly,
But we have the music.

Oh, but you went away, didn't you babe?
You just turned your back on the crowd
You went 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 can't keep track of each fallen rock
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
That's all, I don't think of you that often.

Oh, and you got away, didn't you babe?
You just turned your back on the crowd
You went away
I'd like to once here you say
I need you,
Keith, I need you,
I need you,
Oh, I need you,
And all of that jiving around.
