Take me to the station And put me on a train I've got no expectations To pass through here again
Once I was a rich man and Now I am so poor But never in my sweet short life Have I felt like this before
You heart is like a diamond You throw your pearls at swine And as I watch you leaving me You pack my peace of mind
Our love was like the water That splashes on a stone Our love is like our music It's here, and then it's gone
So take me to the airport And put me on a plane I've got no expectations To pass through here again

Dewayne from Huntsville AlKravitz also teamed with Jagger on a cover of Bill Withers' "Use Me" on Jagger's solo Wandering Spirit.
Tanya from La Verne, CaThis song is so heartbreaking. You can feel the downtrodden nature of the subject's life/love. Add the history with Brian Jones. Oh man, I need a Kleenex.
Zero from Nowhere, NjI think the line, "Our love is like our music, it's here and then it's gone," refers to Brain's slowly dying passion for music. Kinda sad.
Wayne from Salem, VaA very good Rolling Stones song from a very good album. A slow bluesy compassionate tune.During their 1989 Steel Wheels Tour. They showed a concert on T.V. with Eric Clapton playing on "Little Red Rooster". And Axl Rose and Gilby Clarke did this song with The Stones. Axl had requested to do this. Guns-n-Roses opened up for The Stones on a few of their "Steel Wheels" tour dates. Anyway,after they finished doing "No Expectations" on T.V.---Mick Jagger said "That's the first time we've ever done that number on stage,I'll tell you that much".
Shannan from Wilmington, DeThis is a wonderful song, but it is really sad how Brian isn't playing with the same musical passion as before. He was a great person and I really miss his music and him. R.I.P. Brian. He made one of the best rock bands ever and never had enough credit for it. I'm glad that the Stones continued and made more great music. The Rolling Stones forever!!!
Andrew from New York, United StatesYes, the slide part is Open-E, based mainly around the 12th and 5th frets, and a lot of fun to play. I also love Keith's rhythm part, based around an open C chord, fingered without the index (1st) finger, then slid up to the 5th fret, where it becomes an E chord- barre the first 3 strings behind, at the 4th fret. For the following A9 chord, you just move your 3rd & 4th fingers one string higher, and don't pick the 6th string. VERY cool, and so typically Keith -- sounds great, but not difficult to pull off.
Steve from New York City, NySuch an amazing song. Great slide.
Emmett from Milwaukee, WiOpen E tuning, E B E G# B E. Great slide tune, and one of the stones' best songs, the progression to the piano at the end is perfect.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
