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 »

Lover, lover, why is there light
In the itchy, gitchy evening?
And it's dark outside
And what's the difference between wrong and right?
Wrong and right
Isn't it funny how pain goes away
And then comes back another day?
The air feels very good today
Good today
Lover, lover, why is there light?
Did you forget to turn off that light?
Well, that's all right, but it's way too bright
Way too bright
See the eagle above the hill
The lake reflects and is so still
The tension has gone from my will
From my will
Moon on the mountain shining bright
First there is dark, and then there is light
And sometimes the light is way too bright
It's way too bright
Why don't you turn out the light?
Oh, turn out the light
Why don't you turn out the light?
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
