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 »

I've been sleepwalking
Through the railway station
Wake me up
When they call my destination

Where I've been
I was bound to leave behind
All device and all disease was mine

I'm speeding out of reach
Oh, you're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home
Wanderlust will carry us on
There was nothing there for me
Wanderlust will carry us on
In a high rise on my own
I've been on the highways for so long
Looking out in a mirrored balcony
Wanderlust will carry us on

Will there ever be a place for you and me?
Wanderlust

I'm rolling in for a seven day weekend
Living up again to my old reputation
Can you cover me
'Cause I got no armor
Keep on moving down the line
Keep on going further

I'm speeding out of reach
Oh, you're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home
Wanderlust will carry us on
There was nothing there for me
Wanderlust will carry us on
In a high rise on my own
I've been on the highway for so long
Looking out at a mirrored balcony
Wanderlust will carry carry carry us on
I don't know where to go now, I got nowhere to hide
Nowhere to go, nowhere to be
I don't know where to go now, I got nowhere to be
Oh, wanderlust will carry us on

Walk fifty city blocks down but they always find us
Wanderlust will carry us on
Will there ever be a place for you and me
Wanderlust will carry us on
Will there ever be a place for you and me
