PERFECT DAY by Lou Reed, 1942 – 2013

Lou was a prince and a fighter and I know his songs of the pain and beauty in the world will fill many people with the incredible joy he felt for life. Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.

— from an open letter by Laurie Anderson, his loving wife and eternal friend

Lou Reed

“Perfect Day”
– Lou Reed

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark
We go homeJust a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie, too
And then homeOh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging onJust a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It’s such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
