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 »

When you're in a dream,
And you think you've got your problems all nailed down.
Pieces of the scheme
Seem to rattle up and to rattle down.

And when you start to fall,
And those footsteps, they start to fade.

Then you know you're going down.
Yeah, you're falling all around.
And you know you're going down
For the last time.

When you're in the air,
And you're thinking you'll drift off into the rest.
Your friends politely advise:
Hey, look, you're pushing too hard,
And perhaps you need a rest.

And when you start to fall,
And all those footsteps, they start to fade.

Then you know you're going down.
Yeah, you're crashing upside down.
And you know you're going down
For the last time.

Time's not what it seems.
It just seems longer, when you're lonely in this world.
Everything, it seems,
Would be brighter if your nights were spent with some girl

Yeah, you're falling all around.
Yeah, you're crashing upside down.
Oh, oh, and you know you're going down
For the last time.
