Bedsitter images by Al Stewart


Bedsitter ImagesThe subway station's closed again Sleeps beneath its veil of rain My footprints broken trail behind Steals the nightlights from my mind The dark deserted streets then clear Today has lived and died in here So I leave the chapel gloom To find the shelter of my tiny roomBut it's alright while the lights of the city shine so brigh TIt's all right till the last winding train fades from sight Then alone in my room I must stay to lose or win While these wild bedsitter images come back to hem me inThe panelled patterns on the door Chase shivering shadows to the floor Upon the pillow worn and thin The memories of hopes begin The carpet with its flowers in shreds Expires a foot before my bed The crack that won't return again Advancing through my broken window paneBut it's alright while the lights of the city shine so bright It's all right till the last winding train fades from sight Then alone in my room I must stay to lose or win While these wild bedsitter images come back to hem me inThe friends I've left back home all write With laughing words that warm my sight Saying "Tell us, how's the city life?" And I reply and say just fineAnd so you see I can't go back Until I either win or crack I'm standing in a one way street The stage is set The story incompleteBut it's alright while the lights of the city shine so brigh It's alright till the last winding train fades from sight Then alone in my room I must stay to lose or win While these wild bedsitter images come back to hem me in
