Jeff Buckley Mojo Pin (live at Palais Theatre) Lyrics

Last updated:

(J. Buckley/G. Lucas)
In the intro of this track Jeff sings two verses of Chocolate, a song that he has never recorded in studio, but that he often performed as intro to Mojo Pin or in medley with Kangaroo.


[these are some verses of Chocolate]
You got me shaking like a lovers bed on a hardwood floor
In the New York summertime, melting on a tongue of gold

[and this is Mojo Pin]
I'm lying in my bed
The blanket is warm
This body will never be safe from harm
I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal
Touch my skin to keep me whole

Well if only you'd come back to me
If you laid at my side
Wouldn't need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied

Don't wanna weep for you, don't wanna know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so

Yeah precious, precious silver and gold and pearls
in oyster's flesh
Drop down we two to serve and pray to love
Yes born again from the rhythm, screaming down from heaven
Ageless, ageless and I'm there in your...

Don't wanna weep for you, don't wanna know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so...

The welts of your scorn, my love, give me more
Send whips of opinion down my back, give me more
Well it's you I've waited my life to see
It's you I've waited my life to see
It's you...
If you hurt me I'll kill you...
