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 »

If I close my eyes, I see your face, and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate, I can still hear you speak
I picture myself in your room by the chair
You're smoking a cigarette
If I close my eyes, I can see your face; you're saying: "I missed you."
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'

If I close my eyes, I can smell your perfume; you look and say: "hi, baby."
If I close my eyes, pictures from China still hang from the wall
I hear the dog bark; I turned and say: "what were you saying?"
I pictured you in the red chair inside the pale room

You sat in your chair with a tube in your arm; you were so skinny
You were still making jokes; I don't know what drugs they had you on
You said: "I guess this is not the time for long term investments."
You were always laughing, but you never laughed at me

They say in the end the pain was so bad that you were screaming
Now, you were no saint, but you deserved better than that
From the corner I watch them moving things from your apartment
But I can picture your red chair and pale room inside my head

If I close my eyes, I see your face, and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate, I can hear your voice saying:
"Who's better than you?"
If I close my eyes, I can't believe that I'm here without you
Inside your pale room, your empty red chair, and my head
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
