Temptation Inside Your Heart
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Somebody shut the door
I know where temptation lies
Inside of you heart
You can talk during this

I know where the evil lies
Inside of your heart
Well get out of here

If you're gonna try to make it right
You're surely gonna end up wrong
Wrong wrong wrong wrong
Ah!

That's the only chord I know
I know where the mirror's edge
Is inside of your heart
Motown

It's no even within five feet
Well if you're gonna make it right
You're surely gonna end up wrong
You don't look like Martha and the Vandellas
I'm just gonna start it all over again

Somebody get her out of here
Electricity comes from other planets
(It's not that a bad solo. Four times is pretty together)
(You can stay here)

I know where temptation lies
Inside of your heart
Yes he's ready

I know where the evil lies
Inside of your heart
Is he ready

Well if you're gonna make it right
You're surely gonna end up wrong

Oh the hole mess start again
Well New York buildings are very height
And not all offensive
Lock the door

Gonna carry on at infinite light, my dear
The Pope in the silver castle
Was that awful.
Hey, that's fine. That's it.

I still can remember the look on my 6th grade science teacher's face when I claimed electricity came from other planets.I had a tantrum,screaming"but Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground said so".Got stood in the corner,repeating it like a mantra.They never pressed the issue of parent-teacher meetings much.

I had this on a bootleg EP in the 70s, always loved it. Glad it was finally issued officially.
"New York buildings are VERY high". So are you, Lou.

D K

For an acrimonious band full of conflict (remember Lou Reed was a member) they sound like they could have a lot of fun.
