Stephanie Says
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she's given half her life, to people she hates now
Stephanie says when answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling from across the world

But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her 'cause it's all in her mind
It's all in her mind

Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why it is thought she's the door She can't be the room

Stephanie says but doesn't hang up the phone
What sea shell sea is calling from across the world

But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her 'cause it's all in her mind
It's all in her mind

She asks you is it good or bad
It's such an icy feeling it's so cold in Alaska,
it's so cold in Alaska, it's so cold in Alaska

Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she's given half her life
To people she hates now
Stephanie says when answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling
From across the world

[Chorus ]
But she's not afraid to die
The people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her
Cause it's all in her mind
It's all in her mind

[Verse 2]
Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why it is though she's the door
She can't be the room
Stephanie says but doesn't hang up the phone
What sea shell sea is calling
From across the world

[Chorus ]
But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her cause it's all in her mind
It's all in her mind

[Outro]
They're asking is it good or bad
It's such an icy feeling
It's so cold in Alaska [3x]

“You still consider me your father?
“Sure I do.”
“I wish I had more to offer in that department.”
“I know you do, Pop.”
“I don’t blame you by the way. She’s a good-looking girl and smart as a whip.”

“Mordecai!”
“Holy shit!”
“You came back!”

Simply one of the loveliest songs ever written. Lou Reed was a God.

This is what would happen if you mixed "Sunday Morning" and "Candy Says" and made it into one song... whoa

This song will always hold a special place in my heart. My parents have used it as a wake up song when they were younger, and in my early teens, I started doing the same. It is so gentle but so beautiful, never fails to wake me up and put me in the calmest mood while making me alert from the first few notes played

You can say it's your intro song now

John Cale's violin is so beautiful.

@Luis Mario Guerrero Sánchez Yes, I figured he played the viola later. Unfortunately, I don't know the different instruments very well.
