Lyrics

Lou Reed died

I almost said a prayer today
I swear I really tried
I guess it's never been my way
to look that far outside
then I tried to shed a tear
wish I could have cried
it broke my heart to hear
Lou Reed died

I have his voice inside my head
Words and Melody
sometimes I say what he'd have said
and think it's really me
I think I could be starlight
starlight shining from above
I think that I'm a satellite of love

I'll miss that smart-ass New York whine
blatency and inference
symphonies of simple rhyme
passion and indifference
I'll miss his wisdom and his grace
the poetry and power
I'll miss the way he hit me with a flower

I almost said a prayer today
I really tried
guess it's never been my way
to look outside
tried to shed a tear
wish I could have cried
it broke my heart to hear
Lou Reed died
