Goodnight Lou Reed

Farewell to Lou Reed and the others,
Their muse once heroin and morphine…
Strongly fighting their life of demons;
Bravely pursuing a more prurient dream.

Cowards like me, injected their words,
We bathed in their warmth of despair…
For one moment to feel like Candy,
Drugged and too numb to care.

Goodnight from this kid from white suburbs,
Grateful you allowed me to hitch a ride…
Safe in my room, looking life in the face,
I took a walk on the wild side.
