Dreamin' - Escape Lyrics

Artist: Lou Reed
Album: Magic And Loss

If I close my eyes I see your face
and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate
I can still hear you speak
I picture myself in your room by the chair
you're smoking a cigarette
If I close my eyes I can see your face
you're saying, "I missed you"

Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'

If I close my eyes I can smell your perfume
you look and say, "Hi baby"
If I close my eyes pictures from China
still hang from the wall
I hear the dog bark I turn and say
"What were you saying?"
I picture you in the red chair
inside the pale room

Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'

You sat in your chair with a tube in your arm
you were so skinny
You were still making jokes
I don't know what drugs they had you on
You said, "I guess this is not the time
for long term investments"
You were always laughing
but you never laughing at me

They say in the end the pain was so bad
that you were screaming
Now you were no saint but you deserved
better than that
From the corner I watched them removing things
from your apartment
But I can picture you red chair and pale room
inside my head

If I close my eyes I see your face
and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate I can hear your voice saying
"Who better than you"
If I close my eyes I can't believe that
I'm here without you
Inside your pale room your empty red chair
and my head

Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
