lyrics

“Thank God For Lou Reed”

Once there was a girl who knew just where she had to be:
Up in that dark tower above the city that’s by the sea.
Many still remember, many still call her name,
But up in that dark tower she has gone and there she will remain.

Up in that dark tower for me?
Or up in that dark tower to get away from me?
Up in that dark tower for me?
Or up in that dark tower to get away from me?

And now you see how it ends for me...
Pretty badly, pretty darn badly, as I should have foreseen.

Once there was a girl who knew just where she had to go:
Up in that dark tower above the city below the snow.
Many still remember, many still call her name,
But up in that dark tower she has gone and there she will remain.

Up in that dark tower for me?
Or up in that dark tower to get away from me?
Up in that dark tower for me?
Or up in that dark tower to get away from me?

And now you see, why I thank the good Lord above for Lou Reed.
