Eric Clapton – Cocaine Lyrics 19 years ago
How could this song not be about cocaine..? He is giving multiple reasons to use it. He was using drugs for some time...

Eric Clapton – Running On Faith Lyrics 19 years ago
I think she means 'incredible'^

This song is a great love song, I suggest the live version from 24 Nights.
It is a classic love song about a man who doesn't have much to offer, and he is looking for a mate. He explains the importance of having faith in what he believes in and hopes for it everyday. He is in love...

Eric Clapton – Badge Lyrics 19 years ago
Ah, this song is awesome, especially when heard live. I suggest the 24 Nights version of Badge.
This song is a great song, and it is what prompted me to start playing guitar. The live solo is spectacular, as is the man playing it. Anyways, here is what my dad told me about this song:
It was origninally written by Eric Clapton during his days with Cream. When he was in the process of writing it, one of his band mates came up to him on the other side of the table, reading it upside down. The original title of it was 'Bridge' but what his bandmate saw from his view was 'Badge'. The name stuck. I think the song is about Eric and a female that he hasn't seen for a while driving around one night when the meet up with each other again. They talk about things that have happened since their last time together. Could it be an ex-girlfriend/wife? (I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel') During the chorus, Clapton sings "Where is my Badge?" If the original title would have been used, he would probably be singing "Where is my bridge?", and since they are driving in a car, that would make sense. Who knows, I sure don't. If you have anything to add, go ahead, this was just an educated guess.
As the London grafitti states - "Clapton is God"

Cream – White Room Lyrics 19 years ago
Okay, the above comment may be right, but I will share my opinion. This song is, indeed, about Vietman. I think it is about a young man leaving on a train, to go off to Vietnam for his 18 month session. He walked into a sad time at the (train) station, beacuse all the recruits were leaving their loved ones. Then, as he arrives in Vietnam, he waits 'in this place where the sun never shines', meaning, nothing good to live for with all the killing. He waits in this place 'where the shadows run from themselves'. Also, the tiger/jungle lyrics would pretty much describe 'nam.
