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 »

With you, life moves so fast
With you, everything's the last
Slow down
Don't you think you could be less capricious

I've met you, I don't have no death wish
Slow down, slow down
With you, there is no denying
It's you, not my lack of trying

With you, everybody's dying
It's you, it's not me who's crying
Crying, crying, crying, crying
With you, staying home tidy from the streets

With you, every friend is a possible freak
Slow down, slow down
With you, it's a foregone conclusion
With you, empty, it's all a delusion

With you, I can have no illusions
It's you, who has such delusions
Crying, crying, crying, crying
With you, everyone's a sucker

With you, it's got to be your father
Slow down, slow down
With you, life is just a scramble
With you, every day it's a gamble

With you, I can't get my bearings
With you, playing the Virgin Mary
And your crying, crying, crying, crying
Crying, crying
