LOU REED - Ecstasy Lyrics

They call you ecstasyNothing ever sticks to youNot velcro, not scotch tapeNot my arms dipped in glueNot if I wrap myself in nylonA piece of duct tape down my backLove pierced the arrow with the twelveAnd I can't get you backAh, ecstasyEcstasyAh, ecstasyAcross the streets an old ford, they took off it's wheelsThe engine is goneIn it's seat sits a boxWith a note that says, goodbye charlie, thanks a lotI see a child through a window with a bibAnd I think of us and what we almost didThe hudson rocketing with lightThe ships pass the statue of liberty at nightThey call it ecstasy, ahEcstasyEcstasy, ahEcstasySome men call me st. ivorySome call me st. mauriceI'm smooth as alabasterWith white veins runnin' through my cheeksA big stud through my eyebrowA scar on my arm that says, domainI put it over the tattooThat contained your nameThey called you ecstasy, ecstasyEcstasyThey call you ecstasy, ecstasyEcstasyThe moon passing through a cloudA body facing up is floating towards a crowdAnd I think of a time and what I couldn't doI couldn't hold you close, I couldn't, I couldn't become youThey call you ecstasy, I can't hold you downI can't hold you upI feel like that car that I saw today, no radioNo engine, no hoodI'm going to the cafe, I hope they've got musicAnd I hope that they can playBut if we have to partI'll have a new scar right over my heartI'll call it ecstasyOh, ecstasy, ecstasyEcstasyEcstasy, ecstasyEcstasy
