Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 03/02/2019

img_1345-3Jim, over at Getting Better All The Time is continuing to look after Helen’s Song Lyric Sunday, and is doing a fine job getting us to share our well known, and not so well known, songs.

You can find all the fabulous entries this week by following this link here.

Now, you probably had to be around at the time to have heard about the group I’ve chosen this week, but you may have heard about some of the people involved in working with them. Certainly, the writer is pretty well known. Lou Reed. Maybe you know “Walk on the Wild Side” and “A Perfect Day”?

Lou Reed formed “The Velvet Underground” in 1964 and, although they were never a great commercial success, they were a great influence on many people, and are regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock history.

The track I’m offering to you this week is “Ocean”, and this is an acoustic demo version. I hope you like it!

Ocean

Lou Reed

Here comes the ocean
and the waves down by the sea
Here comes the ocean
and the waves where’ve they been ?

Don’t swim tonight my love
The sea is mad my love
It’s known to drive men crazy
Now come that murder seeks
The castle is dead and reeks
The madness can make you lazy

Here come the waves
down by the shore
Washing the rocks that have been here
centuries or more

Down by the sea

Here come the ocean
and the waves down by the sea
Here comes the ocean
and the waves where’ve they been ?

Castles glowing at night
Towers above out fright
What did happen here
Now comes it in my head
I serve you bread on a pledge
Think of your mouth for dinner

But here come the waves
down by the sea
Washing the eyes of the men
who have died

Down by the sea

Here come the waves 
Here come the waves 
Here come the waves 
Here come the waves

Songwriters: Lou Reed
