"Set The Twilight Reeling"
================================
album _Set The Twilight Reeling_
(Lou Reed, 1996)

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


        Take me for what I am
        a star newly emerging
        Long simmering explodes
        inside the self is reeling
        In the pocket of the heart, in the rushing of the blood
        in the muscle of my sex, in the mindful mindless love
        I accept the new found man
        and I set the twilight reeling

        At 5 a.m. the moon and sun
        sit set before my window
        Light glances off the blue glass we set
        right before the window
        And you who accept, in your soul and your head
        what was misunderstood, what was thought of with dread
        a new self is borne, the other self dead
        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling

        A soul singer stands on the stage
        the spotlight shows him sweating
        He sinks to one knee, seems to cry
        the horns are unrelenting
        But as the drums beat he finds himself growing hard
        in the microphone's face he sees her face growing large
        and the swelling crescendo no longer retards
        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling

        As the twilight sunburst gleams
        as the chromium moon it sets
        As I lose all my regrets
        and set the twilight reeling
        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling

(WNET - Sessions At West 54th)
=========================================


        Take me for what I am
        a star newly emerging
        Long simmering explodes
        inside the self is reeling
        From the muscle in the heart, in the rushing of the blood
        the muscle of my sex, in the mindless mindful love
        oh, mindful love
        I accept the new found man
        and I set the twilight reeling

        At 5 a.m. the moon and sun
        sit set before my window
        Light glances off the blue glass we set
        right before the window
        And you who accept, in your mind and your head
        what was misunderstood, what was thought of with dread
        and a new self is borne, and the other self dead
        I says I
        and I says I
        And I says I
        gonna set the twilight reeling

        Soul singer stands on the stage
        the spotlight shows him sweating
        He sinks to one knee, he seems to cry
        the horns are unrelenting, baby
        As the drums beat he finds his face growing large
        in the microphone's face he sees her grace growing large
        and the swelling crescendo no longer retards
        I says now I
        ooohhh-ooohhh-wheee-ooohhh-wheee baby, I, ah
        hey, I says that I
        gonna set the twilight reeling

        As the twilight sunset gleams
        as the chromium moon it sets
        As I lose all my regrets
        set the twilight reeling
        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling

"Set The Twilight Reeling"
===========================
album _Animal Serenade_
(Lou Reed, 2004)

sung by Lou Reed and Antony

Jun 24, 2003
The Wiltern, Los Angeles
===========================


        Take me for what I am
        a star newly emerging
        Long simmering explodes
        inside the self is reeling
        In the pocket of the heart, in the rushing of the blood
        in the muscle of my sex, in the mindful mindless love
        mindless mindless love
        I accept the new found man
        and I set the twilight reeling

        At 5 a.m. the moon and the sun
        sit set before my window
        Light glances off the blue glass we set
        right before the window
        And you who accept, in your soul and your head
        what was misunderstood, what was thought of with dread
        a new self is borne and the other self dead
        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling
        I accept the new found man
        set the twilight reeling

        A soul singer stands alone on the stage
        spotlight shows him sweating
        He sinks to one knee and he seems to cry
        the horns are unrelenting
        But as the drums beat he finds himself growing hard
        in the microphone's face he sees her face growing large
        and the swelling crescendo no longer retards
        I accept the new found man, ah
        and set the twilight reeling
        Ooohhh, I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling

        As the twilight sunburst gleams
        as the chromium moon it sets
        As I lose all my regrets
        and set the twilight reeling

        I accept the new found man
        and set the twilight reeling
