|Cream – White Room Lyrics||9 years ago|
Beautiful song. Sad but upbeat and emphatic.
Lyrics are simple "Beat" poetry. Lost love is all. No drugs, no Nam, no nothing.
Everything is bleak. What isn't bleak around train stations? Or lost love?
Silver horses are tears.
Tired starlings are the parting lovers.
Yellow tigers is just her unspoken look of her recall and acknowledgement of their parting. Perhaps sympathy combined with an admonishment, "get over it. I have."
Of course the erstwhile Lothario cannot get over it and continues to obsess. Otherwise there'd be no story here, folks.
Lost love. It's a classic theme like Longfellow's "Evangeline".
