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 »

Fly through the glass of a window pane
Fall through the sky feeling the rain
Walk on broken glass your Tell-Tale Heart 

Look through the bars of a dirty jail cell
Soar to heaven dive to hell, listen to your Tell-Tale Heart 

Setting fires in the ghost twilight
We see you dress we bolt with fright
You see an apparition disappear 

Ah, jump to the table jump up the stairs
Stand on the rooftop looking out through the air
Walk on broken glass your Tell-Tale Heart 

Lenore am I dreaming
How can death keep us apart
Lenore I see you burning...
And I'd, walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers Tell-Tale Heart 

Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers 
Tell-Tale Heart
