Solsbury Hill - Lou Reed

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill

 

I could see the city light

 

Wind was blowing, time stood still

 

Eagle flew out of the night

 

He was something to observe

 

Came in close, I heard a voice

 

Standing, stretching every nerve

 

I had to listen had no choice

 

I did not believe the information

 

I just had to trust imagination

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom

 

Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home

 

To keep in silence I resigned

 

My friends would think I was a nut

 

Turning water into wine

 

Open doors would soon be shut

 

So I went from day to day

 

Though my life was in a rut

 

Till I thought of what I'd say

 

And which connection I should cut

 

I was feeling part of the scenery

 

I walked right out of the machinery

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom

 

Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home

 

Hey, I called, keep my things

 

When illusion spin her net

 

I'm never where I want to be

 

And liberty she pirouette

 

When I think that I am free

 

Watched by empty silhouettes

 

Close their eyes but still can see

 

No one taught them etiquette

 

So I will show another me

 

Today I don't need a replacement

 

I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom

 

Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

 

Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

 

I've come to take your home

 

Hey, I said, I've come to take your home

 

I've come to take you home

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom

 

Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

 

They've come to take me home

 

My heart going boom, boom, boom
