lyrics

Our love was born in the lobby
Of the Chelsea Hotel in 1972
Where you smiled that I looked messy
but my attitude was pure

You were friends with Allen Ginsberg
Your jeans were torn at the knee
And you dreamed that we'll get bigger than Staten Island
While we lived on nothing but poems and tea

Back then I was just restless
And hungry for a voice
But you knew where we were headed
You said: »Patti, who we are is not a choice. «

Rimbaud and William Blake
It takes courage to be free
You taught me how to not be afraid
And I cared enough to let you be.

While at night you were out there on the Lower East Side
wrestling your demons
a part of me fought to accept it
and a part of me cried

Life is a sea of heartbreak
and those were different times
We were I and we were you
And I loved you no matter who you made love to
