"Burning Embers"
===================
album _The Raven_
(Lou Reed, 2003)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        Fly through the glass of a window pane
        fall through the sky feeling the rain
        Walk on broken glass your tell-tale heart

        Look through the bars of a dirty jail cell
        soar to heaven dive to hell
        Listen to your tell-tale heart

        Setting fires in the ghost twilight
        we see you dress we bolt with fright
        You see an apparition disappear

        Jump to the table, jump up the stairs
        stand on the rooftop, looking out through the air
        Walk on broken glass your tell-tale heart

        Lenore, am I dreaming

        How can death keep us apart, mmmm..
        Lenore, I see you burning

        And I'd walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

        Heart
        heart
        Heart
        heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart
        your tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers your tell-tale heart

"Walking On Embers"
========================================
from the play _POEtry_
(Robert Wilson/Lou Reed, 2000)

written by Lou Reed

performed by actors, local musicians (?)

May 09, 2001
Muziek Theater, Amsterdam, Holland
========================================


        Fly through the glass of a window pane
        fall through the sky feeling the rain
        Walk on broken glass tell-tale heart

        Look through the bars of a dirty jail cell
        soar to heaven dive to hell
        (Listen) Tell-tale heart

        Setting fires in the ghost twilight
        we see you dress we bolt with fright
        You see an apparition disappear

        Jump to the table, jump up the stairs
        stand on the rooftop, looking out through the air
        Walk on broken glass tell-tale heart

        Lenore, am I dreaming

        How can death keep us apart
        Lenore, I see you burning

        And I'd walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart

        Walk on burning embers
        walk on burning embers
        Walk on burning embers tell-tale heart
