Reed, Lou - The Bed Lyrics




This is the place where she lay her head
when she went to bed at night
And this is the place our children were conceived
candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists
that odd and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

This is the place where we used to live
I paid for it with love and blood
And these are the boxes that she kept on the shelf
Filled with her poetry and stuff

And this is the room where she took the razor
and cut her wrists that strange and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

I never would have started if I'd known
that it'd end this way
But funny thing, I'm not at all sad
that it stopped this way

This is the place where she lay her head
when she went to bed at night
And this is the place our children were conceived
candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists
That odd and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

Reed, Lou The Bed Comments
  1. Edward mulholland

    Love this album - one of his best, a masterpiece

  2. Peter May

    The Berlin album has really stood the test of time. Just like a fine wine.. it's better with age!!

  3. carlos enrique diaz mayorga

    solo un genio pudo escribir esto

  4. Charles Deason

    I lived this....and I continue to every night

  5. Gianpaolo Castoldi

    Lou ❤

  6. deekay2

    This could easily have been an Alice Cooper song.

    Charles Deason

    Agreed...it was produced by Bob Ezrin...who worked with Alice on sevrral albums

  7. Luis Morales S

    That ending is so spooky <3

  8. Luis Morales S

    But funny thing I'm not at all sad
    That it stopped this way
    Stopped this way

    Damn, man, that's a destroyed yet sensitive man

  9. Jules Gilmour

    Lou Reed's voice is great.
    It's between a baritone and tenor I think. Has a velvet feel to it.

    LameStudiosInc

    Nice joke.

    Adrià Montoya Navarro

    More like a bass/baritone. Absolutely not a tenor.

    Juan Perez

    what's a baritone? what's a tenor? what's a lou reed? (my command in English is not very good.....)

  10. A Guy

    This is the place where she lay her head
    When she went to bed at night
    And this is the place our children were conceived
    Candles lit the room at night

    And this is the place where she cut her wrists
    That odd and fateful night
    And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
    And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

    This is the place where we used to live
    I paid for it with love and blood
    And these are the boxes that she kept on the shelf
    Filled with her poetry and stuff

    And this is the room where she took the razor 
    And cut her wrists that strange and fateful night
    And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
    And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

    I never would have started if I'd known
    That it'd end this way
    But funny thing I'm not at all sad
    That it stopped this way
    Stopped this way

  11. BandfromtheBand

    3:10 to 3:45 and far beyond.

  12. tiziana sur

    è una canzone che ferma il cuore

  13. Lorraine Hall

    If you want more macabre songs of death... Try White Noise 'The Visitation'.... Here
    https://youtu.be/MH9atqqkUuY
    .. 11 minutes of late 60s psych hauntedness...

  14. Jev!Animate // DXDFanatic OPS GDMT

    The endd of the song sounds like experimental music thingy with waterphone heard faintly

  15. Silver Snail14

    Love those long droning vocals at the end of the song. Sounds like Lou was doing a little homage to his former bandmate John Cale on this one.

  16. christine JAUTEE

    Yes and me idem

  17. No Inference

    A masterpiece never quite understood

  18. gonon michel

    souvenir/ souvenir!

  19. George Martisius

    I don't want to cry, what am i doing listening to this... Again and again.

    BandfromtheBand

    and I'm doing the same........

    Al Gomo

    Maybe you just needed to

    Oh, what a feelin

  20. 이민

    feels like suicide

  21. Caio Franzoi

    looks like bono's voice :P

    Vinyl Diary666

    Not insult Lou...

    Juan Perez

    Boner could never sing like this....

  22. john tangen

    Well that was depressing!

    J. Montrice

    But in a good Melancholic way

    joe murphy

    well, you know, suicide songs generally are. You could try I Love You Suzanne if you'd prefer happy Lou?

  23. Beep Beep

    Was this album recorded in a church?

    Soup Cans

    Leo Cachero no

  24. Johnny John & the Schemin' Dreamers

    Such an uplifting song!

  25. Vinylman95 Productions

    I'm Not usually influenced by songs emotionally. But Dang, this has me bawling

    jim stafford

    as you get older more hurts ... x

  26. Barry Coad

    with all intent

  27. bannork

    Terrible in the sense of almost unbearable because of the beauty of the melody entwined with such a tragic story. I still wonder why Lou wrote ' oh, oh such a feeling!'

    Strat Man

    That's what's so scary about this song, he's not just feeling grief, but relief.

    Erin Salmon

    "but funny thing; im not at all sad that it stopped this way"

    wrayven

    It's actually 'what a feeling'

    robert russell

    what means a lot, although such would mean the same in this context. meaning  it was f emotional .these guys were inundated with opiates perhaps alchohol too. I love lou reed man
    men of good fortune .

  28. Francisco Sanclemente

    Cuando se publicó originalmente en España faltaba la canción The Kids. Aún me gusta más ahora que entonces. Creo que no tuvo muchas ventas.

  29. Erik Amézquita

    I love this album, and all I can say is "oh oh oh oh what a feeeling"

    robert russell

    me too. You're 2 ohs short for the full feeling. }

  30. Lean Frnndz

    qué tema! te llega a los huesos..
