Midnight In Chelsea
Kids 'round here look just like sticks

trade old licks with a beat up six

I just smile and catch the groove

Got the girls all dressed in black

serious as heart attacks

Takes a little bit of getting used to

The old man with the whiskey stains

lost the night and forgot his name

His poor wife was sleeping alone again

It ain't hard to understand

why she's holdin' on to her own hand



It's Midnight in Chelsea

(Sha la la la, Sha la la)

Midnight in Chelsea

(Sha la la la, Sha la la)



No one's asking me for favors

No one's looking for a savior

They're too busy saving me



I seen a lonesome rainy drive

Seems the chauffer took a dive

sold his secrets to the sun

Ahh, later in a magazine

I finally figured what it means

to be a saint but not a queen

Two lustful lovers catch a spark

chased their shadows in the dark

Someone's gettin' off tonight

A big red bus is packed so tight

disappears in a trail of light

Somewhere, someone's dreamin'

Baby it's alright



It's Midnight in Chelsea

(Sha la la la, Sha la la)

Midnight in Chelsea

(Sha la la la, Sha la la)



No one's pinnin' dreams on me

No one's asking me to bleed

I'm the man I wanna be

When Chelsea girls sing

Sha la la la, Sha la la la,

Sha la la la, Sha la la la

Oh, oh



It's morning when I go to sleep

And here comes the distant dawn with church bell rings

Another day is comin' on

Baby's born an old man dies

the way young lovers kiss good-bye

I leave my soul and just move on

wish that I was there to sing this song



La la la la, Sha la la

Sha la la la, Sha la la

It's Midnight in Chelsea

Sha la la la, Sha la la

Ahh Midnight in Chelsea



No one's askin' me for favors

No one's looking for a savior

They're too busy saving me



It's Midnight in Chelsea

Sha la la la, Sha la la

yeah no one's pinnin' dreams on me

No one's askin' me to bleed

I'm the man I wanna be

the man I wanna be

the man I wanna be

Midnight in Chelsea
