White Room


White Room (Album Version) - Cream

Written by:Jack Bruce & Peter Brown

In a white room with black curtains near the station


Black roof country no gold pavements tired starlings


Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes


Dawn light smiles on you leaving my contentment


I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines


Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves


You said no strings could secure you at the station


Platform ticket restless diesels goodbye windows


I walked into such a sad time at the station


As I walked out felt my own need just beginning


I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back


Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves


At the party she was kindest in the hard crowd


Consolation for the old wound now forgotten


Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes


She's just dressing goodbye windows tired starlings


I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd


Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves
