Chelsea Hotel No. 2 Lyrics

Chelsea Hotel No. 2 (切尔西酒店 第2曲) (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - Rufus Wainwright

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

 

And that was called love for the workers in song

Probably still is for those of them left

Ah but you got away

Didn't you babe

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 remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel

You were famous

Your heart was a legend

You told me again you preferred handsome men

But for me you would make an exception

And clenching your fist for the ones like us

Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty

You fixed yourself

You said Well never mind

We are ugly but we have the music

And you got away

Didn't you babe

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 can't keep track of each fallen robin

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel

That's all

I don't even think of you that often
