Lou Reed

Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (born March 2, 1942) is an American rock musician, songwriter, and photographer. He is best known as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of The Velvet Underground, and for his solo career, which has spanned several decades. Though the Velvet Underground were a commercial failure in the late 1960s, the group has gained a considerable cult following in the years since its demise and has gone on to become one of the most widely cited and influential bands of the era. As the Velvet Underground's principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined so openly in rock and roll, including sexuality and drug culture. more »

Heavenly arms reach out to hold me
Heavenly arms entice you to dance
In a world of ill will, the dancers are still
Heavenly arms reach out to me

Heavenly arms, soft as a love song
Heavenly arms bring a kiss to your ear
In a world that seems mad, all the dancers seem sad
Heavenly arms reach out to me

Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia,
Heavenly arms come to my rescue
Only a woman can love a man
In a world full of hate, love should never wait
Heavenly arms reach out to me

Heavenly arms, strong as a sunset
Heavenly arms, pure as the rain
Lovers stand warned of the worlds impending storm
Heavenly arms reach out to me

Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia

(Heavenly arms reach out to hold me) 
(Sylvia, you mean so much to me) 
(Heavenly arms reach out to hold me) 
(Sylvia, you mean so much to me) 
(Heavenly arms reach out to hold me) 
(Sylvia, you mean so much to me) 
(Heavenly arms reach out to hold me)
