album _Magic And Loss_
(Lou Reed, 1992)

written by Lou Reed/Mike Rathke
===============================


        If I close my eyes I see your face
        and I'm not without you
        If I try hard and concentrate
        I can still hear you speak
        I picture myself in your room by the chair
        you're smoking a cigarette
        If I close my eyes I can see your face
        you're saying, "I missed you"

        Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'

        If I close my eyes I can smell your perfume
        you look and say, "Hi babe"
        If I close my eyes pictures from China
        still hang from the wall
        I hear the dog bark I turn and say
        "What were you saying?"
        I picture you in the red chair
        inside the pale room

        Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'

        You sat in your chair with a tube in your arm
        you were so skinny
        You were still making jokes
        I don't know what drugs they had you on
        You said, "I guess this is not the time
        for long term investments"
        You were always laughing
        but you never laughed at me

        They say in the end the pain was so bad
        that you were screaming
        Now you were no saint but you deserved
        better than that
        From the corner I watched them removing things
        from your apartment
        But I can picture your red chair and pale room
        inside my head

        If I close my eyes I see your face
        and I'm not without you
        If I try hard and concentrate I can hear your voice saying
        "Who better than you"
        If I close my eyes I can't believe that
        I'm here without you
        Inside your pale room your empty red chair
        and my head

        Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
        Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
        Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
