Still, by the window pane,
Pain, like the rain that's falling.
She waits in the air,
Matte Kudasai.
She sleeps in a chair
In her sad America.

When, when was the night so long,
Long, like the notes I'm sending.
She waits in the air,
Matte Kudasai.
She sleeps in a chair
In her sad America.

The Belew years are my favorite Crimson Era. Loved this song ~40 years ago and love it still. 
Frame By Frame really does deserve to be on the RP list also. Similar vibe and equally compelling.
I wish Fripp would find a way to include Adrian in their latest tours.  Maybe a special appearance to play on some of the later material.

Thanks bill for playing something else besides court of the crimson king
EXCELLENT!!  I bought this album when it first came out. Then I saw them in concert during this tour.  Thanx RP!

When I heard this song tonight I couldn't imagine that it was King Crimson.  It's absolutely lovely and the subtle guitar is brilliant.



I thought for sure it was a David Byrne collaboration with Bryan Eno I hadn't heard yet.  Sad, but nice.

And the tasteful and restrained drumming, too.

So glad to hear this here! The whole album is a beautiful 10!
Amen Bill - finally hearing this on RP! An incredible tune from a desert island disc IMHO (of course, there are a few more you could add to rotation (Frame by Frame, Elephant Talk?!)

. . . This trilogy of albums is my favorite Crimson era.

Indeed!

• 1981 - Discipline
• 1982 - Beat
• 1884 - Three of a Perfect Pair

Great stuff, although I'm still partial to the Lark's Tongue / Starless / Red era.

Such a beautiful song! I thought that was Adrian Belew playing on this one not Fripp.  Certainly sounds like his style. Thanks Bill, ...Thanks for a beautiful addition.



It is AFAIK, and Fripp is playing the finger picked parts. This trilogy of albums is my favorite Crimson era.
This is very nice, reminded me of talking heads in a different universe. Thanks for playing another unkown  (to me) gem.
