"Lady, Don't Fall Backwards" as written by and Peter Doherty....
Once upon a time
When the cold wind that blows
When the cold wind that blows in my heart
It was a summer breeze and she
Would meet me in Chinatown for opium and tea
And she always brought me flowers
But I spared you those old ballads
Or songs that I couldn't play
But every giro day
She'd dress me like a lady boy
And take me out of the way
Don't let the horse chase the new deal away, no
If we make love in the morning
I see your eyes look like two marbles in your head

Lady don't you fall backwards
C'mon and fall into my arms
Aw, don't you fall backwards
Well, I wouldn't want for you to come to any harm
Now tell me, if darkness comes
Then I will sing you a song
And I will love you forever
At least 'til morning comes
Lady don't you fall backwards
Come on and fall into my arms
Come on and fall into my arms

    General Comment"Meet me in Chinatown for opium and tea.." - my favourite line. What a beautiful song. The whole of grace/wastelands is immense but think is my favourite at the moment.
