“How long’s it gonna be, babe,
Before I get over you, doll?”

Untitled
by me

In another life
I would say yes
when you ask me to sing with you

In another life
I would say yes
to a weekend at the Chelsea

In another life
I would say yes
when you ask me not to go just yet

But in this life
with the manacles of should be
and the illusion of safety
the fear of falling into the street below
well darling
I just don’t know

In this life
I don’t know why I keep coming around at all

Hotel Chelsea Nights :: Ryan Adams
