The Last Time I Saw Richard

Legião Urbana

Acústico MTV - Legião Urbana


The last time I saw Richard was Detroit in '68,
And he told me all romantics meet the same fate someday
Cynical and bitter and boring someone in some dark cafe
You laugh, he says you think you're immune,
go look at your eyes
They're full of moon
You like roses and kisses and pretty men to tell you
All those pretty lies, pretty lies
When you gonna realize they're only pretty lies
Only pretty lies, pretty lies

He put a quarter in the Wurlitzer, and he pushed
Three buttons and the thing began to whirr
And a waitress came by
in fishnet stockings and a bow tie
And she said "Drink up now it's gettin' on time to close."
"Richard, you haven't really changed," I said
It's just that now you're romanticizing
some pain that's in your head
You got tombs in your eyes, but the songs
You punched are dreaming
Listen, they talk of love so sweet, love so sweet
When you gonna get back on your feet?
Love can be so sweet, love so sweet

Richard got married to a figure skater
And he bought her a dishwasher and a Coffee percolator
And he drinks at home now most nights
with the TV on
And all the house lights left up bright
I'm gonna blow this damn candle out
I don't want nobody comin' over to my table
I got nothing to talk to anybody about
All good dreamers pass this way some day
Hidin' behind bottles in dark cafes
Dark cafes
Only this darkness
Before I get my gorgeous wings
And I fly away
Only a phase, these dark cafe days

Compositor: Joni Mitchell
