written by Lou Reed/John Cale

Lou Reed: guitar
=============================


        Don't call me home, little sister
        Before the night is done
        My love and I are fleeing
        Running into the sun

        Turn to fly, go away
        Little bird, please don't stay
        Fare thee well

        Take up all your jewels and cold
        Bury them away in the earth
        Let your memory reduce them to dust
        But don't forget the knife that was thrust

        Turn to fly, go away
        Little bird, please don't stay
        Fare thee well

        Frozen kiss by the fountain
        Running into the sea
        Where shadows choose their horrors
        Designed for music

        Turn to fly, go away
        Little bird, please don't stay
        Fare thee well
