Release The Stars
If his 2001 album ‘Poses’ charted a wide-eyed ascent into the drug-fuelled New York celebrity lifestyle and the brilliant follow-ups ‘Want One’ and ‘Want Two’ represented the comedown, ‘Release The Stars’ is Rufus Wainwright’s over-the-top moment. As well as having complete artistic control, Wainwright has had a major hand in the production, which means there’s been few...

I'm going to a town that has already been burned down
I'm going to a place that is already been disgraced
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I'm so tired of America
Who will be at Sanssouci tonight?
The boys that made me lose the blues and then my eyesight
All together, playing games of cards
Gambling the tiny shards of brass once my heart
I'm leaving for Paris, no I don't think that I'll see you
I'm leaving for Paris, no I don't think that I need to
So I'm leaving for Paris, won't you try to take care of yourself?
Just you try to take care of yourself, 'cause I'm leaving
You taste of potato chips in the morning
Your face has the Marlon Brando club calling
And who would have thought that I'd owe it all to Tulsa?
Do I love you?
Because you treat me so indifferently
Or is it the medication?
Or is it me?
I'm not ready to love, I'm not ready for peace
I'm givin' up the dove to the beast
I'm not ready to surrender to another glove murderer
I will never be as cute as you
According to the Board of Human Relations
I will never fly as high as you

Oh my God
You can go out, dancing
And I'll write about you, dancing without you
Haven't fallen down in a while
Sitting here, walking the line
Well that's okay, I ain't no book
'Cause nobody's off the hook
Won't you walk me through the Tiergarten?
Won't you walk me through it all, darlin'?
Doesn't matter if it is raining
Won't you walk me through it all?
Do I disappoint you in just being human?
And not one of the elements
That you can light your cigar on
Why do you keep all your stars in
From your studio on Melrose Avenue?
You have lost all your assets
Oh, in life-long contracts to you
