  • I just don't know what to do tonight,
    My head is aching as I drink and breathe
    Memory falls like cream in my bones, moving on my own.

    There must be something I can dream tonight,
    The air is filled with the moves of you,
    All the fire is frozen yet still I have the will, ooh, ah.

    Trumpets, violins, I hear them in the distance
    And my skin emits a ray, but I think it's sad, it's much too bad
    That our friends can't be with us today Writer/s: ALLEN GLOVER LANIER, PATTI SMITH
