The perfume burned his eyes
Holding tightly to her thighs
And something flickered for a minute
And then it vanished and was gone
I love the way LR tells stories in his songs
Lou Reed wasn't all about the Velvets or the Transformer Album.
New York was brilliant,lyrics are just so clever.
My favourite Lou song from my favourite Lou album - brilliant lyrics, awesome guitar. RIP!
People rarely mention New York. I love this album.
Caught between the twisted stars / the plotted lines the faulty map / that brought Columbus to New York...
