At first, I heard the album version of this song that didn't really appeal to
me. Then this year, when I was sitting cold and tired in queue for Roskilde
Festival, this breathtaking live clip was played on a big screen:

I was shocked, and the song haunted me for the rest of the day. It went straight
to the heart, and it also revealed the emotion of the wonderful album version.

B: (in time: slow shuffle) In the album version there's only a contrabass playing a low E, but live Rufus plays this on the guitar:

LYRICS ********** You gave me all your love in one day You gave it all and almost faded away Well I'm gonna take this sad unread issue In my arms tonight Looking at hospitals Victorian Feeling as helpless as the Elephant Man Wish you were here to chain you up without shame In my arms tonight So if you should feel a bit out of place This vision not unlike a shooting star I have embraced 'Cause You gave me all your love in one day You gave it all and almost faded away Well I'm gonna take this sad unread issue In my arms tonight Looking at hospitals Victorian Feeling as helpless as the Elephant Man Wish you were here to chain you up without shame In my arms tonight I ain't a soft and saccharine wannabe Still I pray to God This song will end happily So I offer you a place to rest and forget yourself In my arms tonight 'Cause I ain't a soft and saccharine wannabe Still I pray to God This song will end happily So I offer you a place to rest and forget yourself In my arms Yourself in my arms Yourself in my arms A place to rest and forget yourself In, in my arms tonight +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 8th /July /10 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
