Strong Coffee and CoffeeMate

I've confiscated another cd from Steve Jones. Ryan Adams and The Cardinals' double disc album Cold Roses. This morning cleaning up the kitchen and making some heavy duty coffee (then realizing there's an empty vita soy container in the fridge and therefore I'm forced to use the emergency stash of Coffeemate - I know but hey, it's better than black), I thought aloud "I wonder if Ryan Adams is a nice guy?" Of course he's a nice guy - he hangs with Lucinda Williams. And would RYAN Adams come to Vancouver if not to be confused with BRYAN Adams? Would some idiot call out "Sing Summer of 69!"?

Anyways, I can't stop listening to this album even though the new Morrissey album requires a review.
I need an easy plateau.



Let's take a ride to the easy plateau
Where the cold don't come and the wind don't blow
Moonlight flickers on the water below
The orange grove blossoms
In the orange grove
Bad nights lead to better days
It doesn't matter but I think about it anyway

I want a easy plateau
Some place to rest my head
I want an easy plateau
Some place to rest my head
For awhile, for awhile, for awhile
For a little while

Sleepyhead, come on let's take a ride
To the easy plateau in the back of your mind
Up through the alley, take the door under the stairs
My head ain't feeling nothing but cats and rocking chairs
Bad nights lead to better days
It never happens but I think about it anyway
I want an easy plateau
Some place to hang my head
I want an easy plateau
Some place to hang my head
For awhile, for awhile, for awhile
For a little while

How do I hold on to you
If I can't hold on to me
How do I hold on to you
I want an easy plateau
Some place to rest my head for a little while

I want an easy plateau
Some place to rest my head
I want an easy plateau
Some place to rest my head
An easy plateau
