Malmaison Hotel #1 (A Tribute To Leonard)

I remember you well,

In the Malmaison Hotel,

The one in the centre of town.

You opened my eyes,

With the split up to the thigh,

In your beautiful full length velvet gown.

 

And when it fell on the floor,

You didn't want any more,

Than to drink, and to fuck, and to get high.

But I always knew,

No matter what I did or do,

You don’t need me,

You don’t need me,

You don’t need me.

But you wanted me,

And I still want you.

 

I remember you well,

Your church incense smell.

The scent you left on my bed,

On the nights we'd just stay in

And drink all of the gin.

Visions of you nude in my head.

 

I'm glad you said to take your photo,

Memories to keep like you ought to.

I knew the agreement, as you said

And I always knew,

No matter what I did or do,

You didn't need me,

You didn't need me,

You still didn't need me.

But you wanted me.

And I wanted you.
