SOMEONE SAVED MY LIFE TONIGHT

When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights, the curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima donna lord you really should have been there, sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it’s one more beer and i don’t hear you anymore
We’ve all gone crazy lately, my friends out there rolling round the basement floor.
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear, you almost had your hooks in me didn’t you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied, altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear, you’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly, fly away, high away, bye bye.
I never realised the passing hours of evening showers, a slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I’m strangled by your haunted social scene, just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It’s four o’clock in the morning, damn it listen to me good
I’m sleeping with myself tonight, saved in time, thank god my music’s still alive.
And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds, paying your h.p. demands forever
They’re coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, so save your strength and run the field you play alone…
