A Chair In The Sky (LP版) - Joni Mitchell (琼妮·米切尔)

Written by:Joni Mitchell/Charles Mingus

 

The rain slammed hard as bars

 

It caught me

 

By surprise

 

Mutts of the planet

 

And shook me down for alibis

 

I'm waiting

 

For the keeper to release me

 

Debating this sentence

 

Biding my time

 

In memories

 

Of old friends of mine

 

In daydreams of Birdland

 

I see my soul on fire

Burning up the bandstand

 

Next time

I'll be bigger

 

I'll be better than ever

 

I'll be happily attached

 

To my cold hard cash

 

But now

 

Manhattan holds me

 

To a chair in the sky

 

With the bird in my ears

 

And boats in my eyes

 

Going by

 

There are things I wish I'd done

 

Some friends I'm gonna miss

 

Beautiful lovers

 

I never got the chance to kiss

 

Daydreamin' drugs the pain of living

 

Processions of missing

 

Lovers and friends

 

Fade in and they fade out again

 

In these daydreams of rebirth

 

I see myself in style

Raking in what I'm worth

 

Next time

 

I'll be bigger

 

I'll be better than ever

 

I'll be resurrected royal

 

I'll be rich as standard oil

 

But now

 

Manhattan holds me

 

To a chair in the sky

 

With the bird in my ears

And boats in my eyes

 

Going by
