Perfect day – Lou Reed

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

All his friends thought that his fate was to be unlucky. In fact, the drugs had made a loser of him. Finishing this spoilt life, narcotics gave to him, a lonely death in a van by a Nederland lost highway. I can imagine how perfect Eric’s last day has been …

Just a perfect day,
Drink Sangria in the park,
And then later, when it gets dark,
We go home.
Just a perfect day,
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later, a movie, too,
And then home.

Oh it’s such a perfect day,
I’m glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

Just a perfect day,
Problems all left alone,
Weekenders on our own.
It’s such fun.
Just a perfect day,
You made me forget myself.
I thought I was someone else,
Someone good.

Oh it’s such a perfect day,
I’m glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

You’re going to reap just what you sow,
You’re going to reap just what you sow,
You’re going to reap just what you sow,
You’re going to reap just what you sow…

… where hidden behind the attractive mask of forbidden pleasure, hideous Death did grip Eric’s hand.
