White Room
Cream Lyrics

In the white room with black curtains near the station
Black roof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings
Silver horses ran down moonbeams in your dark eyes
Dawnlight smiles on you leaving, my contentment

I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves

You said no strings could secure you at the station
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows
I walked into such a sad time at the station
As I walked out, felt my own need just beginning

I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back
Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves

At the party, she was kindness in the hard crowd
Consolation for the old wound now forgotten
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes
She's just dressing, goodbye windows, tired starlings

I'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves

This song makes me want to walk into a glass door.
Everyone: Joker!

Me, an intellectual: "Polnareff! Iggy! Look out!"
Cream is the best British rock band of the 60s.
Like if you're a Cream fan

Man so grateful I grew up on this, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Dylan... it was another time, another world. We will never recapture this place but those of us who were there will never forget.

I feel the same about 89-93 rave scene in England,the second summer of love
Grew up listening to this Zep and Hendrix


Wow i love justin bieber on this book it makes me so grateful to know christine kobzeff


@Jason Spaulding that's the only thing Christine is capable of. She is nothing, if she's not better than everyone else because she listens to music and went to some dirty concert once or twice in her life.

I saw the Joker with my Dad, his face lit up when he heard this start up during that scene.. I think because he doesn't use the internet he's under the impression that that a lot of his music has been forgotten about, so stuff like this makes him happy to have other people enjoy his music tastes


I had four children that were raised on music like this. I think it gave them an appreciation of past generations and their own generation.

Well believe it or not, even though I'm in my thirties. I grew up with my parents' music and learning about their lives in the 60s and 70s and I got to admit half of me wants to go back and live through it. The good and the bad
