Joni Mitchell - A Chair in the Sky Lyrics

Eagles - Seven Bridges Road Lyrics Sheryl Crow - I Shall Believe Lyrics Paul McCartney - Through Our Love Lyrics Stevie Wonder - Everybody's Talkin' Lyrics Alanis Morissette - Goodbye Pork Pie Hat Lyrics Bob Dylan - Where Teardrops Fall Lyrics Willie Nelson - Dreams Come True Lyrics The Velvet Underground - One of These Days Lyrics
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
