Pale Blue Eyes
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby, you just make me mad

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountaintop
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
I've had, but couldn't keep
I've had, but couldn't keep

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

If I could make the world as pure
And strange as what I see
I'd put you in the mirror
I put in front of me
I put in front of me

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Skip a life completely
Stuff it in a cup
She said, "Money is like us in time
It lies, but can't stand up"
Down for you is up

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves you're my best friend
But it's truly, truly a sin

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

"Hey Maeve.
I know you can't answer this right now because I'm watching you, on live TV.
But I wanted you to know how proud of you I am.
And how unbelievably stupid I've been.
You telling me you had feelings for me was... was all I wanted to hear, and... I was so caught up in trying to do the right thing, I lost track of what that actually is.
It's you.
It's always been you.
I love you, Maeve.
Call me back.
I hope it's not to late"

Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby, you just make me mad

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountaintop
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
I've had, but couldn't keep
I've had, but couldn't keep

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

If I could make the world as pure
And strange as what I see
I'd put you in a mirror
I put in front of me
I put in front of me

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Skip a life completely
Stuff it in a cup
She said "money is like us in time
It lies, but can't stand up"
Down for you is up

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves you're my best friend
But it's truly, truly a sin

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

@Greg Voigt I didn't say they weren't influential, I said they weren't talented. I feel I should qualify that, they aren't talented musically.
Maybe I'm totally wrong about the Warhol connection, that won't make them suddenly sound like gold.
And to quote a wise man:
"While its amazing for me,it must really suck to be you and not knoe anything about good nusic."
Well... it doesn't suck to be me and the guitar is still out of tune and I think I know a lot about good music.
I generally don't like music that needs a social context and some paragraphs of explanation, is an expression of the existential angst of blah blah blah.
I like music that sounds musical. I like music that moves me.
To me this music sounds like a prop to hang a bunch of ideas off of.
If they played polkas it wouldn't really be any different.
Insert music here.

I can't believe I didn't know about this song. This is the first time listening to it.

@Alain Clément I like your style. Thanks for sharing a bit of your story. Your story actually is similar to mine in many ways, no surprise I'm sure. I hope you have found happiness and contentment, I have somewhat, but still have miles and miles to go. Peace my brother.

@Ben Ringenberg hi ;+) It's very quickly possible to fuck up a lot of things in a short time, alas...In my case, i' started very young, 15, with heroin, coke and morph, i spent ten years taking and selling it, then i could stop everything by 1983, when my very best female friend died with smack i sold her...BUT.....there still was alcool, then alcool+downers in large quantities, because of habituation, and that took about 27 years to really stop it, with periods of 1/2 years "clean"...I did 5 "detoxification cures", so we can say i finally stopped in 2010, and i was 50...quite your age ;+)...But, as you said, it was a "journey", noy always dark, with fabulous encounters on a human level, with people much more deserving and wounded than me, like a woman who had accompanied her "man" in a robbery, had taken two bullets in the thorax, but survived and healed to be able to raise her daughter. ..these kind of encounters made me realize the futility of my egoistic self-destruction, let's say.....But I'm not a priest who tries to convert, I try not to judge, neither myself, nor the others...There is work to do! LOL that's why, sometimes, when i see a sincere confidence on youtube, i say a little word....dont ever give up, things can always change...;+)

@Alain Clément just saw your comment, sounds like one hell of a past, I'm sure it has been quite a journey, glad you overcame. I myself just slipped up very recently and fucked a lot of things up with a quickness, but that's life. Just curious, how old were you when you put the dope down? I am 47.

Ben Ringenberg

@Thery Michel you are very welcome, my club is all inclusive. Always happy to know there are others who share my love of the dead, and the warm embrace of sister morphine.

Thery Michel

@Ben Ringenberg Let me join you in your club

Solitude and sorrow are the caratteristica of a great soul. Light is alone in the space-time... I love you blue Wolf
