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 »

Everybody's gonna try to tell you what to do
And never, never, never, never
Let it be said that it's true
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

They're the kind of people that'll always let you down
I know you, too, you don't ever give it a frown
Leave me, leave me, leave me...

Don't you know some people
They just don't know when to stop
They can't tell the floor from the ceiling or the top
And there're other types, they always make you wait
And they're always the first to say
The state you come from

Leave me, leave me, leave me...
Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me forever
Love me, love me, love me...

Leave me, leave me, leave me...
