Betrayed Lyrics

Artist: Lou Reed
Album: Legendary Hearts

Betrayed by the one who says she loves you
by the one who says she needs you
above all other men
Betrayed by her fragile, vicious beauty
her father did his duty
and I lie down betrayed

Justice taught her confidence
her mother was like steel
her cousins, they're all convicts
she alone rose above that wheel
But a motorcyclist no matter how good
is slave to the oncoming truck
and the poison of her father was
her most pitiless luck

Betrayed by the one who says she loves you
by the one who says she needs you
above all other men
Betrayed by her fragile, vicious beauty
her father did his duty
and I lie down betrayed

Three of us lie in this bed
night of infamy
one of us lies on our back
her father's in her head
And quick she turns and slaps my face
and with her eyes open wide she screams
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you
but she's looking right past me

Betrayed by the one who says she loves you
by the one who says that she needs you
above all other men
Betrayed by her fragile, vicious beauty
her father did his duty
and I lie down betrayed

And I lie down betrayed
I lie down betrayed
