Track Name: The Summer Of Lou Reed
It was the Summer of Lou Reed and the heat
Did its best to beat us
We wouldn’t let those girls defeat us.

With our spirits up and the windows down
We sang for freedom
You let them heartaches know that we don’t need them.

And the winter was long gone with the songs
That used to haunt us.
But look what all that sorrow brought us.

Take a walk on the wild side we cried
And the nights they echoed
Nothing to hold on to—so much to let go.

But if you ever peel back slowly and see
You may find a good friend and a good song’s all you need
The summer of white light, the summer of white heat
I won’t ever leave you
The Summer of Lou Reed

We’d talk of fortune, lust, rock and roll,
And where fame would take us.
That summer all those things would save us.

In the verses of Sweet Jane our pain
It seemed so painless
Those things we couldn’t change, they’d never change us.

But if you ever peel back slowly and see
You may find a good friend and a good song’s all you need
The summer of white light, the summer of white heat
I won’t ever leave you
The Summer of Lou Reed
